The most likely candidate for this clicking is the psoas/ hip flexor complex. The psoas attaches directly from your lumbar spine to the top of your femur, and along the way lies over your pelvis. Extending the leg will extend the psoas and this can be the mechanism for that “click” sound that you describe as being deep in your hip/ lower back.
