I dont know whar kind of vehicle or how many miles on it but if its rear wheel drive you can replace either. the rear end will cost more than an axle but if it has alot of miles on it plus you dont know about the rest of the componenents inside do the whole thing

SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds

You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Let me assist you as follows:
Removing the rear axle shaft is realy quite easy.
Her is what you need to do:

Remove the wheel/tire.
Remove the rear brake drum.
Remove the brake line to the rear wheel cylinder and plug the line.
Remove the park brake cable.
Remove the entire rear backing plate assembly; no need to remove the rear shoes.
When the backing plate is off, the axle shaft slides out of the axle housing; there are no "C" clips to remove, like on a Chevrolet. The axle is not held at the differential in any fashion.
Note that if you replace the axle shaft, you will need a machine shop to press the wheel bearings & seals onto the new shaft.

If you have any further questions; please feel free to respond.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance; the graciousness of a FixYa rating for my instructions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

2004 pontiac sunfire wheel noise. My car started with the front right cv axel going bad now there is a very annoying knocking sound comeing from right rear wheel it kinda sounds like something banging...


If the tires are bad i would suggest to start there , may try a ballance on the better tires . As for the squeaking brakes they may be worn out or have dust/rocks in them which can be inspected when you deal with the suspected bad tires

Unbearable humming vibration in rear of car


It sounds like one of your rear wheel bearing hub has gone bad and needs to be replaced before you lose your wheel. I am thinking to pay attention to the right rear wheel hub bearing than needs to be replaced, they go for around $170.00 at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to get the job done with common tools or you can use there loner program if you need to borrow a tool you may not have. With the car parked walk to the rear wheels and push and pull on the top of the tire (Side to side), feel and listen for any play. You should not hear or feel any play at all unless the wheel hub has gone bad. It take less then 1-1/2 hour to change the wheel hub and less if your good with tools. Good luck and keep me posted friend. Be safe.
