Hey Tony!

Great job with the new car!

You might try a rear sway bar for rotation, then look at your tire pressures.
Granted, I have 17" wheels, but I run 35-38 in the front & around 40 in...

Lighten up, Francis.

The toe I was referring to was in the original post.

I'll be the first to admit i don't know exactly what the factory spec is. Most cars have a slight toe in.

As a remotely-related comparison,
my xA had an Injen RD intake, Strup header, and either original DC Sports or Supertrapp muffler. It was never raspy.
I tuned the exhaust with the Supertrapp discs.

When you order, you specify the spring rates (or they will recommend), and the dampers you will be using.

If it's the vacuum, it would usually idle high all the time, and would almost never idle low.
