when you put your car on the scales your really lookin for a number of things ;first hopefuly your at a shop that will guide you in the prosess, look at the total weight,
look at the different weight at each wheel,then look at the % from frt. to back, cross weights,and most important keep good records. and play with the scales a little find out what happens when you add air to a tire, if you have jacking bolts what happens when you turn one up then for the sway bar its hard to say to leave or to take it off it depends on your driving style and the car. but if you leave it on in my opinion it helps fine tune the car.if you leave it in and try it at least take the rubber bushings out and get the after market ones. good luck
