I have a 2005 chevy uplander I've changed both wheel bearings, both front axles and all the breaks and its still making a loud humming like grinding noise what else could it be.

Check the universal joint. You also cannot rule out that it is along your belt as well. (water pump, alternator, fan). If it is making the noise idling then you have something in the engine.

Humming sound coming from serpentine belt area in 2008 chevy uplander

using a mechanics stethoscope check each running bearing while the engine is running. The normal noise will be a base rumble but if you hear one that is different to the others ( a series of knocks ) then suspect that as failing. The noise may be from the belt itself as it may be cracking or going hard and in need of replacement
