Default torque steer with an LSD

So about 4 years ago I had an LSD installed in my car. I put in new axles at the same time, but I there was always ratcheting going on ( kind of felt like a cv joint was going out.) I just assumed that was the way it felt. I finally got my turbo on a couple months ago and along with it come some crazy torque steer under boost. I figured it needed aligned, took it in they said it was fine, but that I should check my cv joint because there was some play on the drivers side. So I replaced the the axle today, and things were great, no clunking, everything was nice and smooth, for a while. I took it for a longer drive this afternoon with a few hard accelerations, and now it's back to ratcheting and clunking.


Any ideas as to what could be going on?


Thanks for the help.

b18c with a 14b, log manifold, 2.5 in down pipe

It just seems weird that I put in a new axle and it went away, for a while. It's almost like the lsd isn't slipping.

100% New Axle? Reman'ed Axle? How many miles since you replaced it. Sounds like the axle is boogered up again. I have never had much luck with reman'ed axles.

100% new. I just replaced it yestarday so maybe 15 miles. What was strange is when I drove it this morning it was nice and smooth, after driving it for a bit, it started up again. What I'm beginning to think is that there is not enough tranmission fluid for the lsd to work properly. When it's cold the fluid is thicker letting the lsd slip and after it warms up it's too thin for it to work properly.

When I pulled the half shaft yestarday, I didn't get any fluid drainning out. I'm thinking that the shop that installed the old axles 4 years ago, let it drain, and didn't put any back in.
