Default Wrap your melons around this one.....

Ever since I went to the solid mount my torque steer feels like it'* going to the left, and today when playing around the car ripped the wheel clean out of my hand and went for oncoming traffic (luckily the car isn't very smart and didn't notice the lack of oncoming) with a vengance. I jumped on the brakes and she straightened out...

I'm also getting a clunk when I brake and turn right, sounds like two heavy peices knocking the heck out of each other. But it'* not everytime, I think I've heard and felt it three or four times.

Factor in my shot struts and it still doesn't add up.

Thoughts?

Check tire pressure in both fronts making sure they are equal. Maybe have the tires rotated and balanced (you could have thrown a weight).
