It was the ball joints according to the tech. Went in for some minor upgrades (Dinan monoball kit, rd sport sways, delrin subframe bushings) prior to the trip to VIR as well as oil change and brake swap and was discovered then. I knew or felt nothing out of the ordinary...but after the new control arms and all the "upgrades" the car feels really tight and very responsive. Love it
