Is it a squeaking sound? A belt that is too tight will chirp some. As far as the bearings, my rears went out at 27k and the front at 17k on my 08. If there is any doubt, pull the wheel and physically turn the bearings by hand. If you feel any drag or roughness in them replace them. Personally I would do all of them at once, but thats just the maintenance mechanic in me coming out. FYI there are three bearings in the rear. 2 in the rim and 1 in the IDS hub / pulley.
