Question Rear axle making a faint noise at freeway speeds

09 Liberty
Only at freeway speeds I can hear a faint "wa wa wa wa" noise, but if I take my foot off the gas and coast it goes away.
Sign of an issue?

Wa wa wa would make me think tires but only under power would make me think maybe pinion bearing?

Yeah have same issue with mine right now, pinion bearing is going out, also another indicator is if your seal is leaking at all.

Probably an indication that your radio is not turned up enough.
