Recently I have been getting a slight i suppose you would call it a humming sound from the rear end of my LTD. It is louder and more noticeable when turn and also there is a small vibrations that accompanies it. It has been suggested to me that is could be shagged bearings or sticking calipers? the noise is also there when driving in a straight line but it is more of a rubbing sound when straight??? any ideas guys?

Hi.

This sort of problem could have a thousand possible answers, of which none could be correct, simply because, we can't inspect it.

Do the proper thing and take it to a diff or brake specialist and have them look at it. You will save yourself a lot of heartache working out which diagnosis fits the best.

BenJ is right but if you feel the urge check diff oil level before spend needless amounts of cash on a maybe theory.

Humming is not very discriptive either. When I read the title my first thought was fuel pump on the way out - i.e. making an electrical humming noise.

But I'm guessing it's some sort of mechanical noise due to your description?
