Why the huge difference between sides up front? I could see a little difference but 341lbs different seems huge (no pun intended )

I've been meaning to (for 3+ years now) to hit up one of the landscape places on Sante Fe to see what they have/can do. Not sure how accurate there stuff is though...I'd like to get both the LX and the 40 weighed just so I know...

The weight difference is probably the springs being a little bit different from one another. The left one is probably a bit talle than the right, and vise versa on the rear. It dosen't take that big of a change in ride height to get that kind of weight difference on the corners. this is the kind of stuff that'll make a race car handle like crap, but dosen't matter as much on something like this 60.

I don't know with the way your were drifting it around corners on the overnighter maybe you need to get that pig balanced out for superior handling in the corners

Ha! true! it's only setup to go right now! OK, need adjustable height shackles and we're hitting the Auto-X circuit next summer

Hey guys and Gals.. any Idea where I could go to confirm this in the Boulder area..? I am starting to doubt my numbers even though I used a calibrated gage for this.

The Pioneer landscape place out on 287 and Dillon Road has a scale. Not sure if there is anywhere closer to you though.

matt, just take some steel to recycle to anyone of the places around denver. they weigh your truck coming in and going out and the difference is the steel they pay you for. can't remember exactly what my 80 was but I thought it was still pretty portly with me and no passengers or gear.

Any of the bigger landscaping material yards will usually let you weigh too as long as they are not busy. Hit up Pioneer on 144th and 287. In Louisville behind Coal Creek Collision there is a Golden Concrete mini yard. They done it for me in the past too.

So this is interesting...

I just got back from Pioneer and they weighed my truck...

2740 in the front
3180 in the rear

and 5940 total.

The total being pretty dead on makes me think they are right and I am wrong.

Cool, my super duper scale dealio must be wrong. I guess.

Only difference was about a half a gallon of fuel and mead and Chili weren't in the truck. I guess it's not tooo far off.
