Are these weights taken with you in the car or out. How much fuel? Are the back shocks disconnected (this will hold the car up if not and give bad readings) Sway bar connected or not. If you have access to scales adjust air pressure on the tires to see just what it will do to your weight percentages.

With the driver in.. The back shocks are hooked up, these readings were taken with a weight bar if you know what that is. You press down the handle and a gauge reads the number out too you. May not be accurate to the right lbs but its the same all the way around so it still gives you and idea. No sway bar, and not alot of fuel.

when we used a weight bar{70's} we always marked the rims so we would hit the same spot every time{it makes a difference}and also measured the heighth of the bar to the floor because if you don't raise to the same amount each time it will change the weights.

We use a piece of paper under the wheel and as soon as it can be pulled out we read the measurement. But the where it hits the wheel would have an affect now that I think of it.. thanx
