Noise and Vibration out of back end

I have this this vibrations and gentle grinding noise that comes out of the rear end mainly when I make right hand turns and I weight the driver rear wheel. I'm 80% sure it's the wheel bearing that needs to be replaced but I thought I would post here and see if there is anything else I shoiuld be checking.

If its a bearing making the noise I'd expect it to be hot to the touch. Be careful not to burn yourself, but after a decent length drive compare the temperature of all the hubs (you can get cheap IR thermometers these days as well)

Stop driving it and tear it down before you add to your parts list for repair, it's not hard to wreck the stub axle. BTW when it comes to bearings there is NO SUCH THING as "gentle" grinding.

I gave the wheel are hard shake and there is a little bit of play. It started happening all of a sudden which makes me question the bearing diagnosis. WHen one of my front bearings blew on the highway the truck hooked across 3 lanes of traffic, not the case here. I guess I just need to open it up and stop posting..

There is a long time between a bearing needing service and coming apart going down the highway. Sounds like you need to step up your preventative maintainance schedule. A new RTC3511 hub seal and a repack and adjust is an annual job on a wheeled truck IMO.

I agree with you, truck has 64K miles on it and I've never repacked the rear bearings or changed the seals. I know, I know..
