Is this a locker or a limited slip ? A limited slip is what you want ,usually called a track lock. A true locker is noisy/clunks in a turn and locks solid on under acceleration .

If you don't want anything jerky or noisy, you don't want that unit. It IS a true locker so whenever you are even slightly on the gas and going around a corner you'll get the "shuck and jive". Your best bet is to find a Traction-Loc differential.
