This could be anywhere in the drive-line. Process of elimination would be the best approach. From your symptoms it sounds like the bad vibration is noticed at low speeds. There are many moving parts within this system. Were there and recent repairs performed? New tires could cause a vibration, if the tread is aggressive. Damaged wheel-bearings, defective components inside the rear differential (suspect low fluid level, damaged ring and pinion or bearings), defective U-joints, or internal transmission failure. You didn't mention if the truck was 2wd or 4wd. If the vehicle is a 4X4 then you will need to inspect the transfer case, the U-joints in the output shaft, and the front wheel bearings. I'm not sure how far you want to go with the diagnostics. Please write back if you have other questions or to give an update to how the repair is going, good luck.

Check the drive shaft that runs from the front axle to the differential it runs right under the drivers floorboard

humming could be wheel bearings - jack car up and spin wheels - they should feel and sound smooth. Grab top and bottom of tyre and try and move backwards and forwards, if it does - whell bearing shot or needs tightening.

Transmission noise could be a driveshaft or gearbox mount being worn / broken. Jack up and move all these bits about and llok / hear for movement and you'll find the mount.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu front end hum


I think your right that its a bad bearing or hub. If your feeling it in the gas pedal and the floor, its most likely the front. If you can find an empty parking lot, try to get up to the speed it starts making the noise, and turn left and right. With the extra load being put on each bearing from turning, that will tell you which side it is.
