I have a D30 in the front and S35 in the rear both locked with Detroits at 4.56 gearing with 33" tires.

Ive noticed that when I do sharp turns my Jeep jerk and buck alot. i mostly do it in 2nd gear with flat ground when I pull U turns, and also 2nd gear or neutral on a downhill slope U-turn. The Jerking lessens on the downhill with neutral, but its still present. Is this simply because of my Detroit Lockers? or possibly those extra bolts I had after the axle swap.

Lockers don't allow your tires to spin at different speeds.. when you're making a tight turn, your inside tire is going to have to spin slower than your outside tire in order to make the turn. However, because of the lockers, that can't happen so your inside tire is going to spin just as fast as the outside tire and it's going to jerk and hop.
