arb lockers working correctly?

so got the lockers in the truck, and she drives fine unlocked, I wanted to make sure they were locking this evening, so i turned on the compressor everything good, hit the rear, good, then hit the front, and started to move the truck forward (was on concrete I know this was bad, but was just moving slowly) it was definitely locking front and rear, but when the front was locked truck pulled to the right for a few feet then evened out, so then I noticed it was hard to turn the wheel left, but right wasn't bad, so I unlocked, and I moved forward and it was still tough to turn right, almost impossible. I just moved the truck back and forth until it finally unwound and let loose. The CDL was not engaged, would it steer fine offroad and this was a pavement symptom, or is something binding, it sounded fine, just felt impossible to turn left, and on pavement I didn't want to force it.

so the fact it was tough to turn the wheel on the pavement was normal, and it will be fine off pavement?

It will be harder to turn the wheel with the front locked on pavement, and off for that matter. The part that is confusing to me is that it was only hard one way. With a CV, this is unlikely, but not impossible. I would go out and try it again. You are not doing any damage having it all locked up on the pavement. Your drivetrain should be able to just release the tension through a chirp of the tires. You should have a harder time turning the wheel both ways.

I'm not saying it was easier to turn right, but it didn't feel impossible. I will put it in the dirt tomorrow after work and see how it feels, or I will try to get it up on a lift and see what happens.

If it was hard to turn both ways then everything is fine. Lockers do that. Time to add a power assist it sounds like. Welcome to the money-pit hole. Every expensive action, has an equal and opposite expensive reaction.

You need to go get really stuck, turn them on and see if you are still stuck.
If you are still stuck....report back

Good to see you a few weeks ago
