I just recently had my rear end replaced on my 05 Titan, and now everytime I turn right sharp and or slow down quickly, the truck kind of jerks forward when I accelerate no matter if I baby it or go out 1/4 throttle. Is this normal with an open differential or is something wrong?

you are describing what it would be like with a locker engaged. this is NOT right! get it back to the dealer and have them fix it! they did something wrong unless they gave you a free locker w/o you knowing. :jester:

Yep - get it back to the dealer before it leaves you stranded on the side of the road...

Alright that sounds good, I can't even really take off hard because it just feels like the rear is weak......I wouldn't think that resembles a locker though, because it feels to me like the truck disengages when I turn, the when I accelerate again on a straight away, there is a slight hesitation the a jolt foward.

definitely take it back to the dealer as something is 100% f_cked up. if you want a definitive answer PM my buddy DezertRunner. he builds rear axles and diffs and what not all day long. that's his fortay! he's the only one i know that has built a Dana60 rear with Dana 70 sleeves with 4.(something) gears and gets 0 lights or 0 tones on the dash. 0 problems and is even stuffed with a Detroit Full Locker. why i don't have one yet? financial constraints! but anyways, he could tell you what's wrong or at least give you a very technical explanation as to what the cause, root of the problem is...
