Ford Ranger wheel bearing?

I've had an occasional low rumble noise from my Ranger. Are there both front and rear wheel bearings? Which are likely to go bad? Its hard to tell where the noise is coming from.

Yes, there are both front and rear bearings. To figure out which one it is coming from, put your car on jack stands, or jack up one side, and spin the tire, see if it makes the noise then. It's easier to see if the front ones are the problem because bearings tend to make the noise more when you are turning. Also, is this truck 4 wheel drive?

I would check u-joints also. Would give you a similar rumble.
