It has to do with the springs, not weight, well thats not true to an extent but its the springs you adjust, or the weight jacks.

What your adjusting is pressure against that corner of the car. Easyest way to do it, is turn the LR jack screw down one, and the other 3 coreners up 1. In essence doing this will put more pressure against the LR spring, and less against the other 3. Which you can see when you scale a car out on all 4 corners.

You can do it with weight (ballast), but generally thats not what people do, to add LR weight, or some call it LR bite.

What I do is add 1 turn in left rear and one in the right front and do just the oposit on the other two corners....this will raise your left rear bite and your cross weight percentage.....go to the tool box at the top left corner of the page and you will find scaling and reverse scaling sesions....good luck.

Anywhear from 60 to 200 depending on what you like......the more left rear you have the looser getting in and tighter getting off as a rule of thumb ........I have progressed to a high left rear set up way above what most chassis manufactures recomend as a starting point ......dont be afraid of too much left rear it can be your best friend....good luck!
