The noise you get when you try to put it in park is the parking pawl trying to engage while the transmission is turning. It’s clear that either the axle has failed, or it has become disconnected somehow. It could be that when you inserted the axle into the final drive, you didn’t get it fixed all the way in place and it jumped out of the spline. In any case, you need to re-visit the axles.
