If im slowing down it doesnt click, but when I accelerate you can hear the click, click, click, and then it stops after the car picks up speed. But its not as loud as you described.
Cotter pin? What cotter pin the lower ball joint cotter pin? There is no cotter pin that should be hitting the inside of your rim, you'd see it anyways. Clicking sounds are almost always CV's. I'd just replace the axle. It's pretty easy and not very expensive. Also if gone unchecked and it snaps you could do a lot damage or get into an accident.
You could always bring it to a shop and have them check it out with a mechanics stethoscope. That'll ID the issue for you quickly.
