Strange whirring noise from rear

I bought my 2001 V6 Camaro this past July and since then I have been trying to figure out what could be causing an issue I've been having since I bought it. There is a sound that seems to be originating in the rear of the car as I'm moving forward that sounds like a repetitive whir. I've replaced one of the bearings which was bad, but that didn't do anything. The differential is in good shape and I filled it with new fluid, so that's not it either. I just rotated the tires and now I'm looking to replace my brakes soon. I'm thinking it might be a warped rotor at this point, but if anyone else can think of something in the meantime, I'd appreciate it.

It could be the diff. If the gears are warped, they will whine while you're driving.

Like I said, the differential is in good shape, so it's not that...

Maybe the other bearing/hub is bad.
Could be the tranny or third member/yoke?
Edit: warped rotor shouldn't make a whirring sound; more of a wobble and be off balance.
