Post strange over steer
I've been noticing some kind of scary over steer lately. The last mod I did that could affect handling is a front strut tower brace. Has anyone noticed this with a front STB? I go around curves and if there's a rough patch I can feel the back end vibrate and start to break loose. Had a scary unexpected drift on a freeway on ramp today because of this. Always wanted to learn how to drift a front wheel drive but this is a scary way to do it.

Quick check would be remove it and see if the rear wheel chatter disappears.

I'd put more weight into the rear tire alignment, condition, and potentially a seized or very worn strut.
Does it only happen when making turns one direction?

Just my 2ยข.

Been a while since I've been here. Just wanted to update this post. it was indeed a very worn strut. replacing the rear struts solved the issue.

That's what I thought. Often installing another suspension component will reveal a problem with another worn out suspension part.
