grinding noise

2000 f250 when im driving down the road its fine but when I start to slow down just a litter, It starts making a grinding noise. this doze not happen cruising around, just on the high way. going down a hill and just costing with alitter bit of gas u can really fill it. if you let all the way off the gas it go's away, it like a sweet spot

Lift each wheel off the ground and spin the tire, you might have a bearing going out.
