well, you may have stripped the screw or nut. it is very fragile when it it over tightened. ive done it before. are you sure the nut if coming loose?

yeah try a new nut and screw....then tighten the diff down fairly tight cause as soon as you hit the gas it will loosen

Same thing was happening to me and it was a bad diff nut and a crunchy thrust bearing. Also make sure that the diff assembly is shimmed in the trans case correctly. If it moves between the bearings the diff will slip more and need to be tighter. I went through a lot of diff balls and thrust washers before figuring out I needed to shim.
