Can you tighten your car up so much, that it's loose?
If the left rear has too much weight on it, could the right rear not be getting enough bite to make it loose?
What if the right rear moved back 3 1/2" to cause a roll steer?
Searching for a bad loose off. Can't get on the gas soon enough.

Do you have any setup info? Spring Rates, scale numbers, shocks, J-bar or panhard bar location ect...
Is the car tight or loose entering?
Tight throught the middle of the corner?
This would help to try and improve your problem.

If its tight in most likely its loose off.

It is possible to have the car so tight that only way to make it turn is bust the rearend loose to swing it around and once you do that its hard to get them tires back under ya.

Hey we found the problem!
LR shock extended all the way and was pulling the LR tire off the ground. The lower shock mount was bent up about 3".
