I have a rear sound from a while (from the left side i think)

the sound is like something rotating. If you speed up, sound increases frequency. If you go over 100km/h sound becomes as a permanent sound quite loud.

I already:

- Replace the the bearing assembly in the left side, sound still there
- Rotate the wheels, sound still there.
- Maintain the breaks and change all break pads. sound still there.
- Replace the rear oil transmision box (here the level was quite low). Sound still there.

I dont know what else to do????

Any suggestion???

can be the shock absober?? i dont think so but im getting nervous.

or change the other bearing?

What about the tripod bearings? or maybe can be the rear transmission?

How to troubleshoot??

I live in a little city mechanics looks more like a carpenters. i had to go to the big city 3 hours from here.

any suggestion please send it

More than easy......

after thousands of checks,

What happend is that the rear right bearing was wearn out. The shop replaced it with a timken one, and now every thing is ok.

Now i understand that my ear is not good enough because i change the left bearing, and that was not the bad one. Now my both rear bearings are new.
