I FIXED IT. Like Faron suggested, the retaining cap for the counterweight bar was too tight. I loosened it a bit. Then I did a torture test. I ran the declination axis for about a minute which is a full rotation or two and only got 1 or 2 clicks. I loosened it just a touch more, and it was completely normal. No clicks, ran it for another 2 rotations.

Then I loaded it down with my telescopes and counterweights, ran the telescope around a full declination spin, and worked perfectly.

Thank you all so much for all your help, I really, really appreciate it.
