I would agree maybe try a little more cross in the car.

Yup, a little more wedge, but the new leafs may fix the problem if the LS leaf is a little worse than the RS leaf.

If the car is a little loose on entry,you might want to pull the RR in 1" to get more sidebite or move the RF out 1" to tighten entry.Also add wedge like the others have suggested,softer rear shocks will also help when the track dries out.

LR usually arounnd 160-170, Rr 180-200, Lf 100-110, RF 120-130. Have seen right rear as hot as 325 before

I just started taking tire temps a week ago and was shocked to see that my rears were as close as they were. The RR was 178 and the LR was 164. I run a VERY dry slick half mile and tires usually gain from 4 to 6 pounds. I also found that with taking temps that my LR was actually underinflated!! Went up 2lbs and made a world of difference.

IT WILL BE HARD TO COMPARE TIRE TEMPS WITH FOLKS THAT LIVE A GOOD WAYS FROM YOU CAUSE THE DIRT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT EVERYWHERE YOU GO. I RACE AT A TRACK THAT IS ABRASIVE HERE CLOSE TO MY HOMETOWN, BUT THERE IS A TRACK 1 HOUR DOWN THE INTERSTATE THAT YOU NEED TO GRIND YOUR TIRES BEFORE THE FEATURE TO GET THE GLAZE OFF OF THEM. SO BE CAREFUL ABOUT HOW YOU RECIEVE YOUR ANSWERS. I AM SURE ALL THESE REPLYS ARE THE TRUTH ,BUT JUST KEEP THIS IN MIND.
