After a recent 4x4 trip, my car started making a continues grumbling noise which sounds like a stuffed bearing.
The noise is only present when the car is coasting, not accelerating.

I immediately thought my rear pinion bearing was stuffed.

After inspecting the car, a flogged out rear uni was found and to much play in the spline of the rear drive shaft also.
One of the rear wheel bearing was a little dodgy also.

Another rear driveshaft was sourced, new uni's fitted also.
Both rear wheel bearing were replaced.

Same noise no change.

Remove rear center all fine. Front wheel bearings are fine also.
Front drive shaft spins freely , so one of the hubs hasn't locked up.

Any suggestion???
