SOURCE: HOWLING NOISES
Did you check your Transmission fluid and your differential fluids make sure there up and I don't know if you checked your rear wheel bearings or not, You can usually tell a wheel bearing when you are driving the car at highway speeds and you go around a corner and it get quite a bit louder Depending on what way you are turning if your turning right and it gets louder it will usually be the right side front or rear. the left usually the left front or back. some cases I have even heard Axles making a Howling Noise. Please let me know what you come up with. And Thanks in advance If I helped you out any. Bear001

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.

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

Jack up the wheel ,take off the allen screws (no oil) then see a locking ring with 3 cross head screws which will be very tight. take them out turn the adjusting ring cockwise and spin the wheel till the play is gone then get the next set of holes in line so there is a tiny bit of load on the bearings and bolt it back up - job done .

to change that, using a hydraulic press is highly recommended. if you are DIY experienced, this trick works as well:
take a pice of a stable metal pipe, 10-20 cm long. and in diameter just a tick smaller than gross bearing size. take a very heavy tool and use the pipe to beat out the old bearing. dont be shy, needs a lot of power.
do not use this method to insert the new bearing. use a pice of wood instead (must sit stable on the outer bearing ring!!), lubircate a bit and beat carfully and very straigt in fractions of a mm. this is the difficult part and here the bearing may brake if you are too rough.
Not really recommend, but working when used with brain and care.
