noise from rear of car

Ive got a couple of odd noises form the back of the car that I can't seem to figure out.

1 - A low frequency grind/thrum that is well below wheel rotation speed or drive shaft. It is road speed related though.

2 - A squeek that sounds like rubber against metal. It lasts about 2-3 seconds, and has a change in pitch that makes it sound like a piece of rubber is being tightned up againt a drive shaft or something. This only happens when the car is in motion, and occurs about every other day on my trip to work (20 mins.)

Any direction to look for these is appreciated.

Kevin

Noise 1 could be wheel bearings - they can create an almost subsonic rumble when bad, or can scream like a police siren. They can also go shhhhhhhhhhhh. ;-)

Noise 2 - well, I need you to hold the car closer to the computer... ;-) More info on exactly when it occurs will narrow it down.

regards,

Zenon
