rear wheel bearing dyi help

I finished doing the rear wheel bearing on my car.
it is the biggest job I've done yet.
Drove the car down my street, turned onto another street and i heard a weird clicking sound. sounds like its coming from something rotating.
here are some facts.
1. I forgot to put the e brake back in. could that be the cause?
2. The axel did not wanna go all the way in to i hit it with a rubber mallet. (it bent a lot).
3. I couldn't get the axel all the way in to put the axel nut on it. Thought when i jack down the car it will push back in its place but it didn't.
4. Maybe i didn't tighten the bearing or the hub correctly?
was gonna go over everything again later.
My fault if i posted this in the wrong place I seem to always do lol
