    the squeaking noise is dry suspension bushings

    the humming noise that gets faster as the car goes faster

    is either a wheel bearing or an axle

    check it out, let me know:thumbsup:

    +2 on the wheel bearing. Does the sound go away when you turn one way or the other?

    I drove a car that was WAY WAY too fuckin low once and the axles were rubbing on the control arms, check that. There's a point where the car is too low ;)
