Sounds perhaps like there is a problem with a wheel bearing or perhaps a broken lug nut stud, or it could even be a dragging caliper/brake shoe depending if it has disc or drum brakes.

Do you have a independent rear end because I know Mustang changed to that rear end in the early 2000's and it may be a constant velocity joint (CV) that has went bad.

IN SOME CARS, THAT NOISE COMING FROM THE REAR OF THE CAR IS A "FRONT" WHEEL BEARING!
