Rear end noise

I recently started to hear a noise coming from around my back right tire. The noise speeds up with the speed of my car, but if I accelerate it goes away. I've spent all week trying to figure out what it is but just cant. It's a loud squeak/ knock and only does it when I'm rolling. I've taken the tire off and spun the rotor to see if I can hear it but I can't. Any input?

put the back end on jack stands and turn off the DSC run the car and get it to about 60 and pop it in neutral listen for a noise as would indicate a wheel bearing. does it happen over bumps more or rolling on smooth flat

Just replaced both wheel bearings, it does it all the time unless accelerating. Bumps don't effect it.

Anybody else experiencing the same problem? The noise tends to lighten up whenever the clutch is in or in neutral. When coming to a stop it becomes a longer squeak. It has to be something rotation because as I'm coming to a stop it goes in and out and you can hear it squeaking at a certain point.. It's getting very frustrating.
