Default Posi rear end slipping

recently had rear end rebuilt upgrading to 3:70 gears (within 500 miles of work)

Drove today for about 30 miles - everything seemed fine until I came to a stop and started a right turn. It felt like the right rear is slipping on loose gravel. Each time I stopped and made a right turn, I got the same feeling.

Checked for loose wheel - not loose

No sensation from left side.

Any thoughts?

U-joints? possible spindle?

Has anyone experienced similar symptoms with a diagnosis?

If you only have a problem when turning in one direction (OK in the other direction), there may be an assembly problem (error) with your differential. I would contact the vendor and tell them the symptoms.

It might just be that the clutch plates haven't 'worn-in' yet; but, usually, you get similar feel in both turning directions.
