Started having a slight posi noise

I have a '55 Bel Air with stock axle with 3.55 gears and a new Auburn Gear posi unit.

I completed my car back in October and now have 1,400 miles on it.

Just 2 weeks ago, I started to get just a slight noise from my posi unit. It only happens in the first 2 turns. Out of my driveway with a left turn, then on to the main street with a right turn. Then it stops completely for the remainder of the trip. If I stop the car for an hour or so and drive it again, it repeats the same thing. If I stop the car for say 10 minutes or so, it won't make the noise.

It's kind of a high pitched noise almost like a break squeak but not quite as high pitched as that.

I used Valvoline gear oil in the case along with the additive that came with the Auburn Gear unit.

Should I try to call Auburn Gear and see if I can find a tech to talk to?
