Check the rear abs sensors. Where they mount to the backing plate, rust builds up and pushes the sensors to hit the tone rings. You will have to remove the sensors and clean the rust and apply a anti-rust compound around the mounting hole.

2008 range rover sport v8td has a rubbing or knocking from rear end on slow pull away.

If it were the prop, you have vibration at high speeds/out of balance. Look at the back of both wheels. If one has oil around where the rearend meets the backing plate, bad axle bearings.

Sounds like the wheel bearing or an axle grinding when I drive but I have new wheel bearings. Only when it's driving. Any ideas?

Did you check to see if inside bearings where good and have you checked oil in rearend. Also could be punkin.

What kind of oil is needed in the rearend

If it did not have oil it would make the noise going straight. Check your brakes and the wheel bearings for play. Oil should be a GL5 70-90 wt gear oil.

Sounds like rubbing or grinding, a constant on/off as if the drum were warped

sound like something catching on the wheel or something in the tyre, if it was a bearing it would rubbing sound constant, could be the splash guard catching, any accident can cause movement and could catch, jack the wheel up and spin it look in the tread, test bearing hands 12 to 6 and 3 to 9 and wiggle the wheel any excessive movement it could be the bearing or the lower ball joint. you need a 10mm gap disc and splash guard, if the gap is too small bent it back. .

Whining in the rearend as long as you accelerate

Sounds like rear pinion bearings or the ring and pinion is worn and causing the problem, sometimes you may be better off to find a lower mileage used rear carrier unit, they typically come with a warranty, be sure to use recommended fluid.

I have alot of grinding out of the rearend

Sounds like bearing or bearing are gone out. Jack up vehicle, check fluid level. Grab one wheel and spin it, listening for noise from wheel bearing area and the rear end. If no noise, spin other wheel listening for noise from that wheels bearing.

If it's a heavy grinding you are hearing, it's rear end.
