Question about 2002 Chevrolet Blazer
Perform this test, SAFELY! while driving at 20-30 mph lightly pull steering wheel to left, then to right, if sound worsens, then gets better in the other direction, I believe you have a wheel bearing problem. this will be a hub bearing assembly, and is not a difficult repair.

the hub bearing is bad.the reason it stops when you turn the wheel to the one side is because its taking presure off the bearing

Hey First thing I always look for is cheapest thing to repair or look at .. Make sure your tires are not cupping .. or make sure they are wearing good and smoothe all the way around .. this can make a terrible noise if they are cupped or worn improperly.. then I would Jack up one side and shake the rear wheels make sure those bearings are tight feeling .. you should be able to tell if they are loose this way ... I dont know how many miles are on your van but usually the drive line is not the problem.. this is probably last thing you need need to shake and see if there is play in it.. Holler if you need more and thanks Jerry

sounds like a possible wheel bearing issue or brake pad issue!!! i would definatly have this looked at, but in the meantime, make sure that it isnt just a backing plate contacting the rotor ...hope this was helpful!!

Look for something caught in the drive shaft - also check rear bearings and drive shaft bearings.
Sounds like you need to have a good oil change and have the mechanic give the underside a good going over. They will usually do this free as part of the oil change.
Also - check for a bad tire - sometimes the problem won't show sitting if the tire is separating on the inside and on the inside part of the tire.
I suspect a faulty tire that isn't separating until you get to speed.
