Last work done:

90 days ago had tires rotated

6 months ago - Steering Rack- had both inner tie rod
bushings replaced followed by Wheel alignment.(Reason for replacement of inner tie rod ends was excessive play in steering wheel ).

When was your last brake job? Grinding is almost always the brakes, growling at 35 mph is front hub bearing.

All brake discs have ample pad left, Rotors are smooth. This noise occurres during the "coasting" phase of driving. At acceleration - no noise, at braking -no noise, at the coasting phase of approx 30MPH (No acceleration and no braking) the grinding noise is present. It is now clear that the noise is coming front end of this front wheel drive vehicle.
Thanks

Fluid can collect on the top of the differential case and/or drip to the ground. SYMPTOM/CONDITION Differential fluid buildup near the differential vent and/or dripping on the ground. DIAGNOSIS Inspect the top of the differential for fluid. Fluid may drip down the side to the ground.
