4 units is a lot!
Are you sure the carriage spindles are ok? see

Then check the outb aft flaps A-frame (they can become loose) and actuating rods.
Also make sure the aileron wing cables have the correct tension. It happens that they become very low, and the aerodynamic effect of the ailerons is much less with sloppy cables in combination with flaps lowered.
All slats extend to their correct position? No slat misalignments or skew?
spoilers are flush on ground but in air? No floating spoilers?
have the Inboard aftflaps the same play / deadweight play, this can cause assymetrical forces as well.

Let us know what you found
