sounds like bad bearings 99% of the time thats what it is . unless your axle shaft is loose or worn slap out!

Sounds like the bearings are shot. Make sure to replace them with a sealed bearing, Pivot Works and All Balls makes a sealed bearing kit.

Before you do that just check to make sure the wheel spacers are still there.
