It is hard to diagnose without seeing the vehicle, but here are somethings to looks for...

If possible, raise vehicle on a lift and take off drive shaft and check the U-joints for broken or bent joints. Another item to looks for is see if it makes the noise (while above on the lift) with someone inside driving.
You will be able to pinpoint the noise easier. Check any transmission mounts for cracking, wear or busted areas. Also, check any bushings.
Sometimes, believe it or not, the hum comes from "knobby tires" humming on the raodway. Lastly, you may listen for possible bearring (if that's how to spell it) and/or rear axles. I hope this might help. remember, the fastest way to solving any auto challenge is in the approach, not the experience. The important thing here to remember is if you have 2 people, one in the car on the lift, AND another person below listening exactly where the sound is. You can isolate WHERE the noise is coming from and then it's just a matter of identifying the area and finding the best way to check it. I hope this helps.

Humming in driver side rear end


You may have a wheel bearing going bad if you only hear the humming while moving. If you hear the humming while sitting still it may be a fuel pump going bad. Change the fuel filter if that is the case as it may be partially clogged and over working the fuel pump.
