Would it be likely that the center bearing has failed if you hear the noise David described during DEceleration? On my E, something is making a hammering sound (sounds like the "Wheel of Fortune" or the sound a diesel truck makes when decelerating) when I decelerate (braking or accelerator pedal completely off) from speeds higher than 50 or so. The noise stops instantly when I accelerate again and doesn't present itself at any constant speed. It also doesn't present itself when I'm decelerating slowly and smoothly, easing off the pedal (if that makes sense), just the sudden stuff, like when some bozo moves into my lane in front of me, moving significantly slower than I am.
