If noise goes away at 55 not bearings, check for tire cupping. Move tires front to rear or side to side and see if noise moves. You will not detect bearing noise when jacked up with no load on bearing.

2003 dodge ram 2500 rear end noise when driving. not when stopped with wheels jacked up and spun by hand

Could be what I think you already suspected - wheel/axle bearing. It may not reveal itself when jacked up and spun by hand because a) there is no load on the bearing or b) you can't get enough rpm by spinning it by hand. Having had a bearing go out while driving, trust me, you don't want that!! You may be left with taking it apart and inspecting the parts. You could try draining the differential and inspecting the oil for metal parts. Good luck.

Grinding noise when driving no noise when parked jacked up and spun wheels no noise but found oil all round engine sump its a ford focus 03 tdci

Forget the oil leak thats just the rear end oil seal but the grinding noise is a wheel bearing for sure and as you go around a bend one way the noise lessens ,these cars are bulltet proof and the gearbox is stout so suspect a wheel bearing or ask a local mechanic to have a drive and get his opinion

Driver side wheel is making noise from wheelbearing replaced wheelbearing and noise is still there if i put truck in 4 wheel drive it goes away but as soon put back into 2 wheel comes back

Sounds like a bad vacuum line to the IWE ( Integrated Wheel End ) or a problem with the IWE solenoid.
Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.

Start by checking the vacuum line at the IWE for vacuum when the truck is in 2WD mode, and the engine is running. If you have low vacuum on one side, trace the vacuum lines back towards the IWE solenoid.

This is a block diagram of the IWE vacuum lines

Transaxle noise at 25mph+ on a 2001 Buick Park Avenue.The noise is similar to a very aggressive treaded tire road noise, loudest at 55mph. Coasting in Neutral at the same speeds has no change in noise....

Try weaving side to side slowly while driving if the noise changes you have a bad wheel bearing. Also you can jack up the front end and check wheel play by placing hands at top and bottom. Hope this helps.

Clunking noise from front when going forwards or backing up..jacked front end up..put car in N..spun both wheels and didn't hear any sound..where else can I check

usually the knocking is the drive bearings, or, the shock , i would check the shockers, if your wheels are rotating normally

Humming noise coming from left front tire, just started two days!

If the tires are wearing normal then its not the ball joint. If it worse while turning one way and quieter turning the other way it a wheel bearing. A ball joint does'nt make a constant noise.
