If your discs are grooved and scored, you should be looking to replace these as a matter of safety/good practice.
If your front bearings are quiet and there's no movement in them, then they should be good, it would take a huge amount of heat to melt the grease out.
A seized/stiff CV joint can cause vibration but you say it's coming from the rear.
Is the noise/vibration/resonance speed related?
I would be tempted to swap the front wheels to the rear to see if the symptoms are transferred with the change.
