Question about GMC Cars & Trucks
Everytime you accelerate the noise gets louder and it gets quieter as you decelerate. But when it's idling it doesn't make this noise.
Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. Could also be a CV. Make sure you know what wheel before you replace anything. Jack it up and spin the wheel by hand. If correct wheel you will hear it. Hope this helps

Check your CV joints - usually you'll hear them clicking the most when you turn a corner while pressing on the gas, but they can make noise like that while you're driving straight. Given that it's most prominent above 35mph, I'm not sure that this is going to be the issue, but it's worth checking - if it is a CV joint, and it breaks, your car will coast to a stop and you won't be going anywhere except on the back of a flatbed.
