3.73 to 4.88 Expo Swap Issues "Info Needed"

Hey guys, since my lift, i bought a expo 8.8 rear end with lockers from a member, I love the lockers. Here is my problem, when I start to excel in 1st or 2nd gear, The vehicle makes this very harsh and loud thunk, I men it can be so violent at times that I think my drive axel is about to snap off, This could not be normal, Now I do have some play in the drive axel, if you were to go beneath the ranger and take both hands, you could twist back and forth. not horrible, but still some noticeable play. I don't know what to think, just need a cure. As I said before, this could not be normal RIGHT?

Looks like after more searching, this stuff is normal and that lockers act that way, the loud thunks when turning at low speeds and so I guess I'm happy it's normal and mouthing bad.
