Question 89 420 Clicking at rear tire

My 420 SEL has started a clicking noise at the rear passenger wheel. It sounds like a spring in an old brake shoe. My 89 has all wheel disc pads and I changed the pads today but the clicking noise is still there, when I back up its worse, but the noise comes and goes.

Does my 420 have CV joints, or something that would sound like a spring clicking in the rear end?

Is the "clicking" related to speed? If so, let's look for the simple solution ... something in the tire tread. Maybe a stone. Or a nail. Years ago, I picked up a clicking after taking a detour for construction. The clicking turned out to be a spike in the inside sidewall of the left rear tire. As the tire revolved, the spike hit a part of the rear axle. (Had to replace the tire.)

I just had a similar noise start in my '87 300E. I think it's a CV joint. Just need to find the time to check further. Will post when trouble is found.
