High chance it's bearing again, even more so if you just recently did it. If you did not buy the higher priced bearing even more so. The cheaper ones often don't even have grease in them. I've run across one that had none, it made slight noise that got worse from the first day I used it. After couple months I pulled it and bearing was bone dry, it had never had grease at all. The seals were still sealing and in perfect shape. Only thing that let it run that long was the parts were wetted with assembly oil.

If you do not buy the best wheel bearing you can get you are screwing up, and lifetime warranty on the crap part just means to you that you get to do it over for a lifetime.

Would a bad differential make noise in neutral?

Question already answered, if you start the posts you should at least read them. Not endearing yourself here at all.

A wheel bearing is cheap, just get it replaced and see what happens. If it were me though, if I do one bearing, I'd do the pair while I'm at it.
