LOCKER ISSUE > Just installed lunchbox locker - problems

Just installed an Aussie locker in my D30 up front. Everything seemed to go smoothly... however we're having some pretty big issues now.

After getting it all back together, I took it for a ride. When I engaged 4WD it acted up.

Symptoms:
Wheel jerks left
EXCESSIVE popping when turning
Disengaging takes time after shifting to 2WD (this is probably normal)

There was also some gridinging when I first started testing the gears in the garage... it oculd have been my TCase linkage as it's not dialed in right now but who knows...

Thoughts?

sounds pretty normal. 4wd on the street sucks with it. I have the lockright in my D 30. It's locked fully now, those are the quirks of it.

This was pretty much undriveable though.... As soon as 4wd kicked in the steering wheel jerked abruptly to the left and the jeep tried like hell to turn sharply to the left. Noise from the diff didn't sound right... I've ridden in rigs with lunchbox lockers before... there is something wrong.

You will not be able to run 4wd like that on dry pavement. It will definately buck, jump, crack, pop and pull all over the place! It espescially wont turn while in 4wd on the pavement!

Mine did this too and it's normal. Any kind of pavement sucks in it. Sometimes if it is really dry off road it will still try to pop and pull in different directions. Just the normal quirkyness of an autolocker. Mine doesn't seem to do it as much now that I've used it a few times.
