Hi there,

Can you tell if the sound is from the front or rear of the car?

It's difficult to tell from here if you have a bad front wheel bearing or something going on with the front differential. Try weaving back and forth in the lane and see if it changes pitch. If it does, then it's likely one of the wheel bearings, if not, then it's more then likely something going on with your front differential. If it's the front diff making noise, check the fluid level. There is a dipstick on the passenger side for checking the level.
