Would sooner think wheel bearing,should be able to hear the noise or feel play in the bearing if jacked up. Abs light on? often a bad bearing will get metal in the sensor and turn on the ABS light also.
The rear wheel bearings is a bolt in hub unit and is not separately serviceable on this car.
Any attempt to replace just the bearing will have to involve pressing the bearings out then taking them to local bearing suppliers and having replacement units sourced or made based on the dimensions, as their are no correct listings available for this application. The cost would far exceed the $300 for the hub, and quickly.
Remove the drums and check your rear brakes. If okay, you may try testing a couple different tires in the rear. Belts separating and flat spots show worse at higher speeds.
It could be bearings if truck is used alot while loaded. Remember 1/4 ton is only 500lbs. High miles, hard driving, or if it was wrecked in rear could all cause these smptoms.
