I have been working on scaling my car for 4 days. Every time I set it on the scales it comes out different. I have removed the shocks and set the ride hieghts. Yet every time I set the weights where I want them I get over 2.5" of split from right to left. I have finally got the ride heights right and 30 lbs of left rear bite, but it is almost even across the front. when I set it on the ground and then back on the scales it all changes again. What am I doing wrong !!!!!

Sounds like you've got some binds. Make sure all the heims, etc. are well lubed and bounce the car to settle your adjustments after each round of changes. Pay special attention to the birdcages; take the bars off and spin the BC a few times as you grease it to make sure the grease gets all the way across the surfaces and all the way around the tube.

bounce the car on the scales. make sure your scaleing on the same spot on the floor. the tires centerd in the same spot on the scale.
i can lose or gain 40 to 60 lbs by being inconsistant with all the placement. started a routine to be same as possible.
