Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question. When do you notice the noise? What speed? On acceleration? On deceleration?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
during acceleration and deceleration
Expert:  brownjeff replied 5 years ago.
The noise increases with the speed the vehicle is going?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes

Most likely what you have is a bearing failing in the differential. Most likely the pinion bearing and the noise will travel down the driveshaft and make it tough to determine where it is coming from
