2003 Land Rover Discovery. 104K miles

Funny sound coming from the front wheel only when I step on the gas. Coming from the front. Sounds faster at higher speeds when accelerating not as bad when coasting speeds. Not a grinding chunking sound. Not a bumping or crunching sound either. More like a steady constant rubbing sound when accelerating. Louder when accelerating harder. No sound when braking. Not louder when turning either direction. Sound whether engine is warm or cold. No major front end accidents ever. No branches, hanging fairings, or trim, or debris noticed. No leaks on floor.

I replaced the front drive shaft last year and lubricated it last weekend. I added made sure the engine oil was at recommended levels too.

What is it?

I forgot to mention, the front driveshaft was replaced last year. No problems. Regreased last week. I raised the front wheels off the ground and the wheels spin smoothly. I wiggled the front wheels side to side and there's no extraordinary play. I went through all the gears. I hear squeaking in H and L 1-2-3-D but not in R but it could be that I wasn't going fast enough in R.

Could it take 1 year for a new unbalanced drive shaft to reveal this issue?

Could it be the front transfer box or front differential low on fluid?

Also, this is my wife's car. No off roading. Grocery getter. Few family day trips on smooth highways.
