Interesting...I last month I started getting a front end shake/vibration but only on the highway and when I was turning the steering wheel to the right. If I was going straight or to the left, no issues. Though if the road was off camber and I was traveling straight ahead, I would occasionally get the washboard effect through the steering wheel.
Took it to Subaru, I'm still under warranty, and they found the left side upper control arm bushings, both inner and outer where bad. When the service manager looked under my 2014 XT he asked me where I got the aftermarket parts from (in a kind of blaming tone), he was referring to my Cusco front power braces, so I answered, from Japan ;) He said, oh ok.
They proceeded to replace the bushings and I was out of there in about 3 hours. I was told I got lucky because they normally don't stock those parts at the Bayridge (Brooklyn) location?? Anyway, she drives beautifully again. Being stage 2 doesn't hurt either! Shout out to @turbotekray
