Mein Auto: 1989 BMW 325i E30
Bearing change didn't fix rear end noise, picked up a new noise as well

My son bought a 1989 E30 in good running condition and good body and interior condition with the idea of working on it together and getting it up to a good daily driver for him. Needed new tires and we put them on. We were getting the parts ready to change out the timing belt, water pump. He was driving it back and forth to school for a week or so after the tire change and all was fine. When he turned onto our road and got up to about 35mph started hearing a whoa whoa whoa whoa sound in the rear end. Listened to videos, sounded like bearings. Changed the bearings and when he drove out today it was still making the same noise AND now there is a clicking noise from the rear end as well. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
