I'm guessing it's a rear tire.

Pull it off and see what's up with the drum. Look for anything that busted and look around for any fluid that might make the pads stick. Might be an e-brake sticking too.

I'd also knock off the differential covers. Pay attention to the spiders. You might be missing teeth.

Sounds like your lockers are locked going around corners. if they are trying to turn the same exact speed that works great if you are going straight, but when you turn a corner they need to spin at different rates because the circles are different sizes that they are making.

Can you tell if it is truly locking up or just going a different speed? You can have someone watch or even film it as you go around a corner.

Does it alway happen on the same wheel or does it happen on different wheels depending on the direction you are turning?

First are they auto lockers or selectable lockers?

If auto lockers then they will lock anytime that torque is applied to the differential example: when you use the gas peddle while in gear. Try not using the gas when turning, get some speed and then push in the clutch and turn you may here a pop and that's normal for these kinds of lockers.

If it's a selectable locker, one you can turn on and off, I would check to make sure it's all correctly hooked up and that it's not getting stuck on for one reason or another.

Hope that helps, if your not sure what type of locker it is post a picture and well be able to help out.
