Unhappy Noise at rear differential

I have this noise coming from the rear differential only under load and
at pretty much between 40-50 mph .when i remove my foot off the gas
pedal ,the sound goes away .
i'm pretty much sure it's not the wheel bearing or the guibo flex coupling.
it sounds like something is out of balance .
Can anyone suggest which bearing would make that noise?
or common bearing noise?
Any advice would be much appreciated ?

If it sounds like a "CLUNK" or "BANG" noise, then you have prolly broken the diff bolt. Its a very common problem.

If the noise is steady under load and constant crusing but goes away when you lift off the gas its probably the input bearing in the nose of the diff.
