When I am driving there is a loud, almost what I would describe as a wind noise "whine" coming from what seems to be the rear of the truck. It ONLY happens when I have my foot on the gas and it only makes itself known around 60 mph and above. The truck drives fine with the occasional drive-line slack "jolt" when decelerating. I do have some vibrations when accelerating, but only around 30-45 mph.

Thoughts? Truck is a 2007 4x4 CC long bed Automatic

I tried looking on the forums and google for a similar topic but had no luck.

I'm not really sure how to check it honestly
then you won't be able to replace it, either. You will need a shop. Basically, if the rubber is soft or cracked around the bearing, that is a problem.

That what they said was messed up. The rubber casing around the bearing itself.

Well there ya go. Get it replaced - will make a huge difference. They just go over time, designed to wear.
Should I try to find a certain type of shop? And I guess I might as well have the driveshaft balanced while they have if off huh?

I had the same problem

I had the same problem earlier this year. The problem was worn U joints in the front propeller shaft. Most of the time I am in 2WD which means this torque tube is unloaded so I didn't get the "clunk." But it can vibrate in sympathy to the moving truck thus the whine.
