I need someone to clarify this for me. How is it that the only way you can change your crossweight is by jacking weight around the car? In other words, why won't your crossweight change if you increased the static weight on one of the corners, on the left rear for example? I've heard people say that it will change the static weight at the corner but only the left side and the rear percentages will change and not the crossweight. Can anyone explain this to me please? Thanks.

Justin, You have been misinformed. Changing static weights changes cross. A few other things that will change cross,....jacking,changing,shiming springs. Tire size, offset,air presure,ride heights, etc, All of these static changes will change cross.

Good luck,
