driveline noise

like the title says theres a constent hum then driving the explorer sort of like tire noise but its not the tires.... and when i turn right the noise stops completley from stop to say a 100 the noise increases gradualy with the speed but if i were to take an offramp at 50/60/80/100 the noise stops

wheel bearing ?
cv shaft ?
drive shaft ?
rear end ?
front end ?
transfercase ?

its getting more and more anoying

oh its a 4.6 awd explorer with 4hi and 4lo

if the noise changes while shifting body wieght(turn wheel slightly back and forth while driving)is most likly a wheel bearing.

a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

use a set of chassis ears for diagnosing it. it's the only way to go.
