[DeTomaso] Non pantera suspension question

I've been struggling to get my vintage race car to hookup coming out
corners. It seems to want to lift the inside rear wheel enough that I
loose traction and just spin the tire instead of accelerating out of the
corner. You can hear it pretty well a little past 50 seconds in this
video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQDhmizu3Go I'm not sure if I'm
driving harder or it's getting worse but I do notice it more and more.
It does seem to be more pronounced in right hand turns.
I've lowered the car a couple inches at both ends, have stiffer front
springs and a 7/8" solid roll bar on the front. I changed the rear leaf
springs to a slightly newer model that are supposed to be a little stiffer.
Not sure what to try next. I have to run the original suspension
geometry and lever shocks but I could change the oil in the shocks to
either thicker or thinner viscosity. Stiffer or softer front springs?
Any other suggestions?
