My opinion: swap rear shocks; the 95 RR is allowing the weight to transfer too quickly to that corner, put more angle in the J bar; I run my short bar (used to have a J bar, but used same angles) at 17 deg, teamate runs his at 19 to 20 deg, square rear end, move LR spring in front of rear end (you'll have to reset ride hights and rescale), and switch rear gear to 5.67 or 5.83, I run 5.67 on 1/3 and hit 7,000. If she don't get enough forward bite, then increase rear % toward 59-60%. I know that's alot of changes, but I know of several people who run a simmilar setup on 1/3 mi. high bank, rough track (Central Missouri Speedway). The most critical changes in your case are square rear, rear shocks, and gear. Let me know if this helps. Good luck!
Thinking about it, I'd add J bar angle to critical list.

Move your springs to the top of the rear, or front. Take some cross weight out, maybe your pushing going in, causing your loose condition coming out. put more angle in your left bar
