Loud Clicks from Rear End

I have a 03 Explorer with the 4.0 V6. It just broke 92,000 miles. Since I bough it if you hit the gas hard enough you can hear loud clicks that seem to come from under neath but are actually coming from the rear left wheel. Most common in reverse, if I gas it up in reverse not that hard you can hear a few loud clicks and then will stop until I hit the gas in drive. I checked the emergency brake setup but found nothing wrong. I know its coming from that wheel because I had my friend lightly power brake it while I listened for the noise. Any ideas, what will happen if I let it go?
