REAR WHEEL NOISE

2005 Ford Freestar • 4.2L V6 FWD Automatic • 140,000 miles

When driving I hear a clunk\hard click sound from rear wheel it seems to do it as wheel makes a full rotation I can really hear it at slow speed (rolling) but when I jack car off ground and spin wheel I do not hear it?

Sounds like the wheel bearing on that side is coming apart. Can you move the wheel up and down or in and out?

Thanks for reply, First thing I thought was bearing, Jacked it up and spun wheel No Noise, No play in\out, side to side or up and down. Thinking it is just when weight of vehicle is on it.
