New Locker in front

I just had a Lock Right installed in the D-30 front of my 98 TJ with 31x10.50 tires a nd it pulls hard in 4wd but not in 2wd. The grease monkey also replaced the left u joint. Is this normal when having a lunchbox locker up front?

When you get on the gas it pulls to the left. But only in 4wd.

It shouldn't even be noticeable in 2wd because no torque is being applied to the front axle. Not condescending but do you fully understand how it works as opposed to spider gears?

Yeah I cant even tell its there in 2wd but I really know its there in 4wd! I did alot of research on the forums before I bought the locker and I got a good deal ( I think ) for $220.00 shipped. I have never drove anything with a front locker so I am a little green!
