 steering pull and lock up gator HPX 4x4

PLEASE, any help would be appreciated! John Deere Gator HPX 4x4 with 1550 hours. I operate this machine for snow removal. It is equipped with a plow and Snow Ex bed spreader. Recently, the rack, rocker arms, 4WD shaft, steering shaft, front axle boot, rear diff seal and head gasket were replaced. Since then, I have a severe pulling to the right, intermittently and occasional steering lock up. It is more pronounced when carrying salt weight in the spreader. Any suggestions or idea where the problem may lie?

The early HPXs had a problem with the right front axle coming out of the spline in the front differential, When this happens and it doesn't go back in it ruins the end of the spline and binds up the front end. Usually you can tell if the seal is leaking around the axle. Or if it has leaked and run out down to that level. There is a level check plug on the drivers side of the differential, remove the plug and fill to that level.
