bad wheel bearing? please help!

While driving at freeway speed I felt a rapid vibration start in my rear end. I pulled over and the right rear wheel had a burning oil smell coming from it. I got back on the road and it was gone. This has happened 3 times over the last month or two.

Thoughts?

I would check that, it could be many different things, better get that on a lift or jack stands and see whats going before it costs you way more.

Just so you know , ANY vibration is VERY bad, it means something is WAY out of spec and most specs are .000 tolerances so when you CAN FEEL it, it's costing you more
