I also have a three link car with a stock clip and had the same problem for the first three weeks this year. It sounds like you may need to increase the RF spring rate or even swap the front springs. You may be pinning the RR tire to the track too hard which is not allowing the rear to come around. By increasing the RF it is putting the weight to the LR which will help you turn. I statrted last year with a 1050 RF and 900 lf. That was the setup that made me too tight like you described. I put a 1200 RF in and won the feature.
