Yes, it does sound like a loading issue...when load is applied (car in gear) the howl is there, but when load is not applied (coasting in neutral) it goes away.
A wheel bearing does not act this way, but the diff gears do.
Sound does travel in weird ways, so even if it seems like it is coming from one side it may not be so.
Who set up the rear end?
