Detroit locker question???

I myself have never owned a full carrier detroit locker (love my ARBs), but I saw this on another board:
The detroit is acting up really bad, its banging(ratcheting) about 15 times in the first mile the jeep is driven then quiets down to the way it normally drives.
If it helps it's for a D35c. Is this normal for Full carrier detroits? He never said how old the locker is, but maybe it's an install error, or just too many miles wearing it out? My brothers old lock-right used to act up at first, but then again it :nuke: after a couple months. Thoughts?

Mine was doing it, it was because the teeth were sheared off inside the locker, it was also a D35c. It would just kick in and out while driving down the road. So I took it out and welded it, she won't be unlocking any more!

The teeth inside (can't see it in this pic, but helps you get an idea) near where I have my finger is what went out, they say it's typically the cause of snapping an axle, the sudden break and torque shears off the teeth.

If this is whats wrong with yours the parts are astronomically high, not too much short of buying a new locker.
