Default Sapphire 4x4 problems, help needed

Hi there, here is my problem

Ive got a 4x4 saph and i broke the drivers side front drive shaft a few years ago and sent it to a friend of a friend who took out the broken shaft and towed the car back to his workshop to be sorted as i know nothing about fixing cars, well i got it back and he had put the new shaft in but ever since i got it back from him its not been as it should.

If i go round a left hand corner it makes a wierd noise like a dud, dud, dud banging sound and feels like it comes from the back and dose not feel safe atall, ive changed all the drive shafts front and rear and changed the rear diff but still i have this problem.

i would just like to add it acts like this if you are excelirating into the corner and even it your coasting it round the corner

it works as it should when turning a right hand bend and you cant feel anything wrong if your going in a strait line.

anyone had/seen this problem before?ifso can you tell me how to solve it.

it was towed with all 4 wheels on ground with 1 shaft missing, could this of caused it?

Thanks in advance for your help
