tracking issues

Hey Guys,
I swapped in axles and lift from my old jeep to a newer one, and I am having some steering/tracking issues. My rear D.S. is getting shortened so the results are based on driving around in 4 hi with only the front D.S. in. I have an aussie in the 30 as well. When accelerating, the jeep pulls to the right, and it pulls when decelerating. Turning and driving around in general I am fighting for control of the wheel. It feels like it has A mind of its own. Any help/advice is always appreciated. Two links to the build up:

It's torque steer. Once you get your rear back in and you're back in 2HI, you'll be fine (unless you have a rear locker).

Re: tracking issues

Thanks Maniac- I thought it may have something to do with the aussie because I have rocked out front D.S. only back in the day when i was open and it didnt handle like what i described. Ill research torque steer a little more to find out if thats definatly what is going on
