I use the M324 on my foldup bike, no problem but I have less than 1,000 miles on that bike.
I recently had a clicking sound in my Ritchey V4 left pedal on my LHT, I slid the seal back on one side and removed the cap on the other side so that I could put some new grease on both the inner and outer the ball bearings. Several miles later, no clicking. If you still have the old M324 pedals, put some light oil on them so that it can flow into the bearings and put those back on the bike and see what happens. Grease is better, but I think that you need some odd tools to take the bearings apart on the M324 so you might not be able to get grease into them.
Clicking can be from loose chainring bolts, loose crankarm, or many other bike problems. You should not have to buy new pedals.
