2012 86 Steering abnormality

Hi guys, ive owned my 86 for about 5 years now and for the last few months its been driving in a very unusual mannor.

When i make a right hand turn at speed, once the car loads up into the corner, i hold the steering wheel steady but car rotates more agressively. As if i had addded steering angle. I can feel something sort of pop over into this differnt position.
When i straigten out the wheel is down to the left about 1/8th of a turn.
After some distance or any movement to the left the steering "pops" back into place and the wheel is straight ahead again

Going around a left turn has no issues what so ever

Its got new coil overs, new steering rack, new rear subframe bushings. The alignment and tyres are good (i work in a shop with all the alignment gear)
Running 18x9.5 +38 with 235/40/18 pilot sport 4

None of the bushings are torn/damaged and i cannot get any excess play out of anything. Myself and 2 other mechanics have spent well over 10 hours under this thing and cant figure it out.

Might be something dumb or something unusual so i figured id make a forum post and see what the collective wisdom of the community gets me.

Thanks guys

Very possibly a front ball joint. Check again. I had almost the exact same symptoms. Turned out to be a lower ball joint.

I'd put money on it. Maybe even the bush where the arm bolts onto the chassis (not sure of the technical term).
