Aussie Locker post install question

I finished installing my Aussie locker last night. Everything was done by the book and the install went well. The tolerences were all in check according to the manual. Did the spin test while it was on the rack and it checked fine too.

I took it out tonight for a quick test to see how it did. Man this thing is clicking loud. I don't mean a ticking sound, I mean loud like the gears are coming out. In 2 wheel drive you hardly notice it. In 4 low and turning sharp right or left that is when it really gets loud. The manual says something about 600 mile break in you will hear popping. Is this thing suppose to be this loud during break in or is something wrong. If it is I don't know what it could be.

That's normal bro. Cutting the wheel to hard in 4wd like that will cause that binding sound so don't do it. LOL. As long as its not happening in 2wd. You did put it in the front right? Hopefully so. Anyway good luck and enjoy it

Is it front or rear? I put a Aussie up front and unless your over exaggerating, mine does click but not enough to be concerned about anything. It's normal for a Aussie to click on tight turns and such. If your that worried, have a pro check it out. If your 100% confident on your install I'd say it probably just normal and it's something new you'll have to get use to I was a little worried at first too, now I'm used to it.
Help restore faith in humanity, do something nice! KCCO
