Mine sounds like the sound a tea kettle makes before it whistles, when the 
lid is knocking on the kettle. Only happens under load.  Mechanic says it's 
the center drive shaft bearing. He says that the sound will get worse, but 
it's not a driveability issue.  he suggested that I wait until the exhaust 
system needs replacing, since it must be removed to access the bearing.  He 
said the part costs around $150.  I saw the part at Blau for $159:
