    I have a 2001 suzuki grand vitara 4 wheel drive. It makes a grinding noise from the back wheels, fairly new tires which have been rotated no unusal wear. Doesn't make noise when braking only when driving, either fast or slow. Is it wheel bearing needing to be repacked or replaced or is it the rear brake drums ?

It is possible that the noise is actually the tires. My girlfriends Accord was misaligned and produced a bumpy wear pattern on the tires. It made an hellofa racket. I mistakenly replaced the wheel bearings.

There's no rehab procedure for a wheel bearing. When it's making noise it has to be replaced.

Most likely it is a Hub bearing worn out. If you have access to a highway with a sweeping curve the outside tire turns faster than the inside tire following the curve. So if the noise increases on a left curve, the right side is bad. If the noise increases on a right curve, the left bearing is bad.

You did not state whether you have 4 wheel drive or 2 wheel drive.
The 4 wheel drives have the Hub bearing. Check around for parts prices. The price can vary by $100 from store to store. If you have the 2 Wheel version it is much cheaper to replace and you will need a wheel bearing seal.

Do spend a little time checking the other components in a 4x4 as the additional components can also make noise.

The differential is noisy at highway speeds. I thought it was a wheel bearing and replaced the lf and also rotated the tires. The noise was minimized but is still above average. Any suggestions?

Some of the Differential noise can be verified with a LOAD or NOLOAD test. Usually a pinion gear bearing will be louder under power. By backing off the throttle or putting the trans in neutral the pitch of the noise will change.

If you have a good spare you can switch it to find a noisy tire. Once wear has set in a pattern on the thread "like from the bad wheel bearing" it may wear down. Sometimes you need to have a tire place shave the tire to get it round again.

Finally, check the rear axle lube. Some of the newer cars use synthetic. The Posi's use an additive. If you verify differential noise you may want to have the clearance of the gears checked.

Noisy rear bearing?

Is isnt the rear end it would be very bad shaking and wouldnt last long because it would throw a bearing out. So its most likly the wheel bearing and you can just take it to a local automotive shop.
