Default one way diff

Hi, Can someone tell me if one way diffs are prone to binding or hang ups? I just installed my first in the front of my car and for some reason three tires are moving but the front left sticks. Do I need to change the dogbones to a longer shaft?

It's a xxx-s graphite. I checked the spindles and cvds they seem to be smooth. The diff is as well without the dogbone inserted.

Is the one-way properly greased? Check to see if each side spins freely on its own.

Thanks for your help. The problem was due to a hang up on the camber rod, that and I had the diff installed backwards look forward to racing it soon, all I need is a crystal for the receiver. Again much appreciated.

Okay, after all my diagnoses the diff still locks up. I've taken two apart now and in both right outdrives the one way bearing is losing it's rollers. The instruction sheet says I should file the pins that stick in the outdrive before installing the diff in the car. Could this be the problem, if the pins are touching each other would they cause binding in the one way bearing and finaly can you drive these diffs too hard? I know it's a lot of questions but I'd like to get it "rolling".
