Sounds more like wheel bearings to me. The brakes will unload the bearings.

to all concerned:
I currently began working on my 68 corvair monza coupe - 95 hp and
automatic. It ran fine until last night. At low speeds I heard a rubbing
sound in the left rear wheel- at about 50 mph the noise becomes a rumble.
this noise is present in or out of gear and seems to get better when I apply
the brakes. Tonight I jacked the left rear wheel up and put the
transmission in neutral. I don't hear any rubbing but I do hear a slight
ticking in the differential (like a paint spray can being slowly rolled). I
jacked up the right rear and the same noise is heard. Is this noise normal?
If not what could it be? This is my first time dealing with differential
problems- any hints? thank you
