CLICKING NOISE

Could my "old" NOS flasher be the culprit? Exact same clicking noise is also present when I hit the brake pedal!!!

 If your turn signal bulbs are old school 1157's, no you don't need an LED flasher. You could try new electronic flashers though. 
When I first added LED's to my dash, I found the turn signal indicator bulbs did not work even after checking polarity. I reinstalled the 194's and they worked again. I later upgraded to Elite Series II dash SMD's and had no problem in that regard. IMO, don't buy cheap LED's from E-Pay, heard too many bad things on cheapo bulbs. Buy from Bill at Hi-Po Parts and be sure you're getting the best available.

I'll go one more, also watch what you get from Amazon. I got some from them for our motorhome interior and when you looked directly at them they looked bright, but the color temperature of them was so high that they didn't illuminate the interior. The color shift was so extreme you couldn't make out much. There was very little light in the reds and yellows spectrums and would have been totally useless as brake or turn signal lights, which they were advertised for. I rated them and answered questions about them several times, ripping them apart as much as I could.

Geoff aka stanglover had it right, I found a cricket in my car  Haha
Pulled my steering wheel off and undid turn signal/hazard/horn wiring and wiped everything down with a rag. Re-installed everything and turned on my hazards and hit the brake pedal and NO clicking noises, whew dodged a cricket there.  Thanks everyone for their input!
