    Could be something in the trans making noise. You would really need a tech to check it out.

    Like I said, you really need to get the car up in the air and look at it. Not sure if you replaced both sides of the axles, and bearings, those are usually causing humming noise.

    a lot of times it sounds like the hub and bearing sounds like it is coming from one side but it is the other side that needs replaced
