Shudder when turning

Hello so I have an Xi wagon, My problem is that whenever I'm turning left or right from a dead stop, I get a bad shudder/vibration coming from underneath the car, that seems to follow to the rear of the car. It will also only happen if I'm close to 3k rpm in first gear.

I just replaced the center support bearing and preloaded it.

If I exit the turn and/or shift before 3k I doesn't happen, or is very minimal. What should I look for?

Yeah you should probably start by checking out your front axles like said above.

I've been noticing way more people from mass joining the forum in the past month or two, or at least posting more. Keep it up massachusians!
