passenger rear area(wheel I think) howl and grind?????

so I was driving easily around 40mph and suddenly a loud clanking noise in passenger rear wheel area . Sounded like I ran over debris but I checked and nothing on the rear view mirror. Noise went away and came back later as I slowed to a stop light. Thought maybe something caught under the car or rear wheel. Stopped but nothing. Drove off again. noise starts as I go around 10mph up to 35 or so and is louder when I let off gas and hit gas again but went away when I drove faster. However it is now much worse at those slow speeds and its a howling screeching noise with occasional rough grinding and it cycles in harmony with the passenger rear wheel's spin speed. Is it my cv joint or wheel bearing???? Sh#$%t , I just got this car!!! Its 25 years old so I understand but I want to drive it!!!!

I've had lots of wheel bearings go over the years. Usually happens on cars that do not get driven enough. What you hear is exactly what i heard many years ago on the first rear wheel bearing failure. Since then I know enough when i hear that noise getting worse, as you describe it, to call a flatbed unless I'm just a few miles from home. One time late at night I pushed a little far and the housing had to be removed ( lots of exta expence) and machine work was required.

Check your rear e-brake shoes as well. Might get lucky and that's all it is.

You should be OK as when the machine work was required I must have had over 20 miles to go.

Is it more prominent when cornering?
I Lost 2 rear wheel bearings over the years and each time the noise (howling) increased with cornering.

Yes, when you load the wheel ( turn left ) the right will make more noise or on a road with a crown that shifts the weight the wheel with the most weight will usually respond with more grinding / screetching.

Check the CVJs too. Sometimes the rubber boots crack loosing the grease and shortly after the grinding begins...
