    Nope that is not normal I'd take it back. Don't know much about these trucks really I just got mine. But an Eaton-posi (nice BTW) should not catch like that when new and first installed IMHO. It may last awhile like that but it really shouldn't be binding up... I imagined you paid quite a bit for it to get fixed they should stand behind thier work...

    if it is an eaton it a limited slip and most likely clutch type... go to GM and buy a little tube of GM limited slip additive put it in and say good bye to the pops and clicks /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
