Question Rear end kickout, + odd stain and tube

So here's the problem, I put a double adjustable panhard bar on the car and it seemed to help my rear end from kicking side to side when i hit a bump on a curve. Probably a year has passed now, and the kick to the side has gotten just as bad again. I know doing 70 certain bumps on the highway it really kicks out

I got under the car and looked for any broken links in the panhard, the swaybar, and everything else under there and can't find anything busted? Wondering if anyone has any ideas.. shouldn't need Watts linkage on a daily driver

Also, just put on some new bbk headers/y pipe and I notice a brownish stain on the y pipe but pretty far back, near where my driveshaft connects up front. Curious as to what this could be, as well as a random what looks like a cut off piece of hose. Noticed real dirty/dampness of maybe oil too in one spot. See pictures below..

Maybe a transmission leak. The house could be some kind of vent maybe??? I've never owned an A4.
