Question transmission noise

I have a 99 v6 5speed mustang with 120k miles on it.

it has started making a rumbling/whining noise when being driven above 30 mph. The noise doesn't change when going around bends or turning or if I dip the clutch while moving. It is also there if I slip it into neutral while driving. I have changed both front wheel bearing when they started to make noise so it isn't them.I am thinking its the rear differential, any ideas anybody.

thanks, bjh

It's probably a U-joint.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

trans noise

I changed both the UJ's and the noise still persists.

I am thinking of changing both front wheel bearings again as the noise is similar to before seems to be coming from the front.

any more ideas

thanks,

bjh

changed the tires? or checked for an imbalance? Or even the alignment? That would cause rumbling

The only other thing I can think of one of your mounts may have given up the ghost . ..
