When using the bathromm scale setup or the store bought kind.....do you have to weigh all four corners at the same time to get an accurate weight of the those corners?

If you can't work em in close & git em in your face with their orange landing gear down, don't bother taking the safety off......

Well you would have to keep all four corners at the same height if you weighed one at a time. That could be VERY time consuming if making alot of changes or pretty much ANY change. But to get a perfectly accurate weight, YES you need to do them all at once.

All four would be the best, that way you can just read the weights and go to the toolbox here and check your percentages then run back and do adjustments....it will save you alot of time. My shop is about 12 blocks away so when I'm doing my scaling with the bathroom scales I just call the little woman on the cell and she goes to the computer and gets the info for me....then I do the adjustment and call her back lol. Its just better to have all four so you can change one corner and then check the other corners right away to see what you have. To me I'd rather do it in 5 minutes the 30 minutes with jacking the car up all the time to move the scale around. JMHO.

Thanks Guys, that's what I was thinking but just wanted to make double sure.
