Dana 44 with detroit locker need help

I just had a no slip detroit locker installed. An now I am having some problems I think ? Its pulling to the left between shifts, mainly 1st -2nd and under some acceleration. also its catching some gears from 1st to 4th when its cold. it never did that before. I had the locker installed by a pro so I dont know what could have gone wrong. this is also my daily driver. did I choose the wrong product?? please help I am kinda at a loss here. thanks
John

sorry to say but its normal called torque steer, very common with auto lockers, and what you mean it catches gears?

your fine, mine somtimes after letting off the gas feels like it pulls too. its a whole new way in driving, you will be fine once you get used to how it drives going around corners, taking off, driving in rain/snow. after awhile you will forget its there

59,000 and the clutch feels fine. I know a good bit about cars. I am new to the TJ. I was a sport car guy. but i could not resist the top down feeling anymore.

yeah my detroit took some getting used to since it was my first locker. The first time it racheted I thought someone hit me!! Now I thinks its fun when the torque steer kicks in! WWWHHHHHEEEEEEEE where are we going now?!?!?! Like she has a mind of her own.

I dont let anyone else drive though. Could freak someone out.

Thanks

I've heard people mention a difference in shifting after installing a locker. I think you have to slow down your shifting a bit.

It is related to the Detroit Locker's increased backlash. A perfectly smooth shifting tranny will often pick up a bit of a between-gears grind after installing a Detroit Locker... as good as they are. I know mine did.

And Tothepoint, the rest of those symptoms are normal too. And some of those will get better once the Detroit Locker is done training you on how it likes to be driven.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.
