Your slipper is too tight. Loosen the slipper so it always give before the diff does and your diff should last months.

Default Correct

You always want the slipper to slip before the diff. Otherwise you get the results you have. If the slipper can't move, the diff has no other way to react than to wear out the diff rings, balls, thrust rings, and thrust balls. Replace all of it and use a new nut in the diff. Then break in the diff and make certain you start with the slipper loose and tighten it after the diff is broken in. Make certain by pulling full throttle and listen for the slipper to slip and not the diff barking.
