Author Topic:   Where Is The Cross Weight....
posted March 19, 2003 03:54 PM
I have borrowed a set of scales from a bddy and yes I am doing the search thang on here and MANNNN what a topic.
What I need to know is name the top three things to effect cross weight. I can get the rear percentage with adding weight yea but getting the cross seems to be a little Elusive for me.

you can add weight to the left rear, put shims in the left rear ot right front spring more stagger on the right front, more air pressure in bolth rf and lr. less offset on the rf or lr move fuel cell as far left as possible and fill it all the way

Thanks for the reply racer17j. I just got in from playing with the weight thang. As I add weight to the left rear the cross doesn't change much at all, the rear precentage is going up and the weight of the LF and RR is also going up making me believe the RF is trying to pull upward???

If you use weight jacks now is the time to ***** down the RF. Or try a spring spacer on the RF. Try putting a 1/2 or 1" peice of wood between the tire and the scale on the RF to simulate more stagger. If you have a sway bar try unhooking it.

Here is a question for everybody. What is more important, left rear bite( more weight on the left than the right) or cross? lets say you get the right front real light and have 45% cross and still have 160# more on the left rear. or what if you get the right front heavy and have 50% cross with no split. Those are kind of extreme axamples but you get my point.
