    I was asking about u-joints because not all problems are obvious without dismounting the driveshaft. If your truck has a lot of miles and the u-joints haven't been changed, see this YouTube video:

2004 ford freestar rumbling noise as I drive down the road at about 45-60mph - it sounds and feels a bit like I hit a rumble strip but it is coming from the engine

Sounds like a half shaft. Reach around behind each wheel and see if there is play in the shaft that leads from the wheel to the transmission. There should be no play. Other possibility is a bearing hub. Jack up car, grab the tire at 9 and 3 o'clock. Shake wheel if there is movement not from the tie rod then it is the bearing hub.

Possible Front Wheel Hub Bearing Assy
If so- do both sides
You can get them from Rock Auto online
any quality brand you want.
Will only tell if it is bad by removing the brake
caliper,pads & rotor & turning hub to feel the
rough bearing by hand
If you have front wheel drive with drive axles as

Forester sounds like driving over rumble strips at 60/70 MPH

When the tires were balanced, were they checked for smooth tread ?
If they were on the back for an extended period of time, the tread could be choppy or uneven.

When I get the Durango up the 25 or 40 speed the rpms start to act up and you feel a rumble in the gas pedal and the RPMs gets stuck I have to let the Rpms drop to around 1 or below1 RPMs before the rpms...

that is a throttle body male function, open the hood and see the are where your accelerator cable is attached see if that sticks if not then your throttle body needs a service or replacement...

Intermittent rumbling sound in transmission at ~30 mph when going uphill and easing up a little on the gas. very much like driving over a rumble strip on the highway like they put in front of toll booths....

Do you have the problem when you turn on the car as well? I had this same problem, turns out the alternator was going bad. A few months later the alternator went. After the alternator was replaced, the problem went away.

Rumbling from 40 mph most pronounced at 70to 75 mph.

If this is a high miilage vehicle check your sway bar links . Around $50 bucks each. Could be alot of things but check that especially if it feels like it is under your feet.

sound like your limited slip clutch in the differental is worn, normally you shouldn't be able without alot of force to turn one of the tires.... inspect the clutches or replace the fluid and retest....simple way to check the rear bearings is to remove the axle and spin the wheel and listen....GL
