it could be your wheel bearing,i had to replace mine. not to hard to do yourself. if you hear a humming noise that goes up and down with speed then it is your axle bearings, i replaced those also. those are a pain!! I took the axle out myself and had a axle shop replace the bearings for about $450 bucks. The dealer wanted 3 times that!! If you want to avoid that problem replace your axle lube every other year. I tow a boat quite a bit so i do it every year. I also use 75W-140 instead of 75w-90. Never had a problem since!
