Its either broken, or if you recently changed fluid, the friction modifier additive wasnt added with the gear lube.

Incorrcet gear lube, or lack of friction modifier WILL cause noise and or chattering when cornering.

this really doesn't help you much but i worked for a guy with a 2wd Chevy with a 14 bolt and a locker. some how the fluid leaked out and it was run dry for a little bit. he filled it with ams synthetic oil. now the truck makes the most ungodly noise under power. we nick named it whiny. you don't even need to use the speedometer you just get used to to what noise it makes at what speed. gets so loud you have to speak up in the cab sometimes. its run like this for 10,000 miles. i hated taking that truck on parts runs, you could hear it coming for what seemed like a mile.
