Long time between bleeds. Much of the improved pedal feel would be from just bleeding the brakes. I run braided lines on my wrx. I bleed the brakes annually and when I do the pedal always feels better afterwards. That’s after just 1 year

Good to know. It's easy enough to do. I'll just be sure to do it annually and win win.

Upside is less chance of corrosion and brake fade

Ok, so I’m getting a side to side type vibration on acceleration between 50-65 mph. Smooth as glass otherwise when off the throttle. Guess one of my axles took a dump? Or can it be something else?

Torque steer / vibration can be caused by tires; try swapping them side to side and see what happens.

I removed front shocks couple times and after with bad wheel alignment i get vibrations from around 70 km/h speed and really bad ones at 100 or higher speed so definetly bad aligment doing that for sure. But i manage to remove vibrations completely with simple home made alignment. No more vibrations for me. Its not because bad camber but front wheels to steering wheel .
Bad wheel balance could make virbations as well.
Mud stuck inside rim.
Just check those.
With bad axle i just got clicking sounds at low speed and nothing on high speeds.
