Violent Shake while turning

Last weekend, I noticed a violent shaking on my new to me 200q20v avant
that feels like it's coming from the driver's front side of the car.  It
has only occurred in sweeping right hand turns at an indicated 70mph
+/-0mph so far.  I'll be swapping out brake pads this weekend on the
UFO's, so it'll be a prime time to diagnose while I'm in there.  Any
suggestions of where to look first?

It's also got a little clunk when pulling into the driveway, usually
turning left into the driveway.  This, to me, signals bad strut
mount/bearing, so I'll be checking for play in that.

Also, I've got some clunking over low speed bumps from the rear of the
car, I've read that bad rear tie rods can cause this, so I'll take a look
at those as well.

Any tips/advice would be greatly appreciated.
