Did you check the drive shaft u - joints ? When you are going straight you do not feel this vibration ?

Agree with Firebird,


Check u-joints and check the pinion flange nut. Also is this a locking differential? If it is a locking (traction Lock) differential a special friction modifier is required to be added with the differential lubricant. With out the additive these things make some strange noises when turning.
