Roaring/Growling when putting into Drive - not bearings

We were having the roaring issue so we took it to the shop. They said it was the front left wheel bearing (again). Instead of paying the unreal price of $400, I did the job myself. I ended up replacing the whole hub assembly and put it back together. I also replaced both struts while I was at it.

Now, the noise is even worse. My wife and I narrowed it down the simple fact of putting the car in Drive creates the noise. I had her drive past me many times and I can't hear any noise from the wheels or anything, the noise is heard in the cabin though. So, I decided to put it into 4x4 and backed out of the driveway. She REALLY made some noise now!. Also, it actually stopped at the bottom of the driveway and I didnt want to put more gas on it as I didnt want to break something. I put a bit but not much.

So, I'm wondering, is it the tranny, transaxle, transfer case, etc?

Any help would be appreciated.

Brian

I'd get a transmission service and transfer case service done. While the covers are off the tech should be able to check for any visible damage of any chains/belts. If you can replace your own bearings your ahead of the game. An easy way to check for a bad bearing is to lift the selected wheel off the ground and rock it toward you with one hand on top and one on the bottom to check for any play.

Good name by the way.

I had a noise that sounded like a CV joint having a rough spot, the transmission went out at 18,000 miles and Ford replaced it.
