When you say carrying any speed what are we talking about? Driving like a normal person, or hooning around? When you say locking the wheel, what is happening here? the car suddenly slows? the tire squeals? you feel a catch in the steering or the steering feel changes? Could you just be overloading that tire by cornering too aggressively? (Blizzaks aren't the greatest for dry traction, but not bad for a snow tire)

Otherwise bushing / strut related.
That would be where I'd start looking.

The front diff is open in the 5MT WRXs, so outside of a carrier bearing failing or binding due to improper preload, I wouldn't suspect the front diff.

Don't these cars have VDC? Could it be cutting in?
