    Really difficult to read your post

    What tyres have you got fitted? Bridgestones are notoriously noisy. If changng the wheel bearings hasn't fixed the problem I'd start looking at the tyres

    First of all to the site buddy!

    Secondly, from reading your post I noticed you mention something about your back wheels have play in them when you tug at them....is this correct?

    If so, the lads on here identified for me that if the movement is present, then it is the rear upper control arms (banana's)!

    Have a look at the links below, its long but identifies the problem, could be whats happeneing with yours.

    Hope this helps and hope you get the problem sorted soon mate with minimal £££££££'s!!
