Is it the clutch????

I had this problem before the tranny swap so Im wondering if its the clutch. I can make a turn while its in gear and everything is normal. I push in on the cluth pedal when Im turning and I get a little shimmy. Now the catch is, it didn't start doing this until I put in the Detroit gearless locker in a little over a month ago. I can feel the locker doing its thing when I turn but this shimmy feels like its toward the front. I checked out the clutch while in the middle of my tranny swap this past weekend and everything looked good. Fairly new clutch by the way. Just a little bothered by it after all the work Ive put into it lately. Just wondering if someone here has had this problem????

It's the locker. The locker wants power connected to it, or it will lock/unlock the way you're describing.
