grinding noise

i have had a slight grinding noise coming from somewhere? it has gotten worse since a snow wheeling trip this l;ast weekend. it is in all gears, faster you go the quicker it gets, gets a little louder but the noise quickens mostly. is at it loudest right when you let off gas pedal. makes noise with clutch in or out. have a 4 inch lift. no drive line spacers. seems to be coming from right side of vehicle. can hear it if i open passenger door, but not drivers. i can feel it slightly on the floor board. was thinking maybe u loints since i drug them through the snow last weekend, am ordering new drivlines in about a week to go with a spoa, but would like to get noise figured out before i install abunch of new ones. thank u 4 [img]images/graemlins/violin.gif[/img] help

Re: grinding noise

While you are going down the road...feel your shift levers. If you have a u-joint on the rear shaft going bad...you can feel some new vibrations in the t-case shifter. If the intermediate shaft has a bad joint you can feel it in the trans shifter.
The fact that you can hear it when you open one door, and not the other, leads me to think it's a rear wheel bearing though. Mine was making a grinding noise last year on one side....turned out I had a rear wheel bearing split in half lengthways!! Trust me....chase the noise down before it grenades, if it is the bearing...you will be glad you did!
It took me hours,(and $$$$) to fix all that stuff!!
