Question about 2000 Lincoln LS
My 2000 Lincoln LS has a very low frequency rumble coming from the rear end when the car is between 40 and 45 mph. It doesn't appear to change pitch with the speed of the car. It is present regardless of whether the car is under power or coasting, in gear or not.
The half shafts were replaced in July 2008 to solve a rumble over 75 mph that got worse with higher speeds. Transmission was replaced about 10,000 miles ago.
I read the consumer reports found this problem with the drive shaft. My 2000 V8 has done it for 4 yesra now and no problem othen then being anoying. They fixed it in new years, but it just a hum at 40 - 50mph.

See If the pitch changes when you swerve the car from left to right. You don'e have to swerve hard enough to scareanyone, just enough to load one side more than another. If the pitch changes, you likly have a bad wheel bearing or tire. Tires will make any noise a wheel bearing will so switch tires first side to side and see if the problem fgollows the tires. If not then check the wheel bearing.
Also and maybe first:
The fact that the noise is limited to such a narrow speed could also indicate an aerodynamic issue such as a roof rack or bike rack or somthing like that having moved and is now vibrating.
