If you are sure it is from the front then ignore this bit but it could be the rear brake shoes moving slightly when reversing. Would be more of a 'donk' rather than a click though.

Silly as this sounds, if it's a click you are hearing, is it possbly the indicator return mechanism in the steering column moving past the indicator stalk?
