What kind of car is it? Maybe try a little bit more camber in the front.

4mm might be too low..try 5 or 5 1/2..if your running a soft setup & rubber tires
plus the traction compound might be building up under the chassis on the sweeper side...i would try this first before i change anything else

+1 - I'm willing to bet that the chassis is dragging, resulting in a "pushy" car in the sweeper. Clean the chassis, raise the car by 1mm on all 4 corners, and try driving the car once more - if the push is resolved, you've found the problem. If not, try more static caster and/or camber in the front. You might want to check overall body height as well, since you don't want the front tires to rub the fenders or the front air dam hitting the track. Both situations tend to make the car push, although you'd notice a push caused by an ill-fitting body in virtually every corner.
