Sweep (also referred to as inboard toe out) is when the front hinge pins are narrower on the inboard front block then they are on the forward block. Sweep provides more mid corner steering at the expense of entry steering, which I believe is primarily due to the increase in castor - happy to be corrected on this if someone has a better explanation?
