tl;dr: Steering feedback means different things to different people. Ultimately, however, it's about using the steering wheel as both an input and an output device. At a very high level, the concept of steering feedback has to do with the user interface of the car. If we restrict the discussion to just the wheel in front of you, it's easy to imagine that ...

Tires are out of balance, or possible a bent rim. Take it back to where the tires were put on and tell them you have a vibration. If you have a vibration when you are using the brakes that goes away when you take your foot off the brake you may have warped rotors. I would take car of the tire balance issue first before addressing the rotors. You may only ...

First, do you notice that on your ...

A complete brake inspection and overhaul would be required, especially as you do not have a complete history of the vehicle having recently acquired it. Next step will be replacement of any bent wheels and possibly damaged tyres. This vehicle will also need an ...

I didn't see you list anything about brake components... Check the brake rotor as they are common sources of steering wheel vibration, even when not damaged. If you hit a curb then there's a chance the rotor was warped.

It's your motor mounts. I've been through 2 sets of stock, while waiting for aftermarket billet aluminum, and can say with certainty that you need to replace those motor mounts. The right front wheel is taking a beating from engine lash, and all fours will show a really gnarly tread wear pattern, meanwhile, so rotate those tires as often as possible. If ...
