Corner weight results

Just had my saxo corner weighted with some interesting figures

Current suspension setup;

Koni 3 point adjustable dampers front + rear
Eibach springs
Standard rear beam setup
Stripped shell
Lower strut brace
Upper strut brace
Ride height: rear slightly higher than front

Corner weight figures With driver 75kgs;

313kgs. 284kgs

119kgs. 201kgs

The front doesn't seem too bad but it seems the rear is way out ???

Any possible reasons why there 80kg difference or is that normal ?

Yes it's been lowered by previous owner.
Could he of made a mistake in doing so?
What could I adjust on rear beam to alter corner weights?

quite possible the ride height is not even across the axle, can also mean the arb is under tension to get the bolt in too.

re-set the ride height and make sure tge arb is fitted correctly.

The front is miles out too.
I would try to rectify that area before the rear.

FWIW this is how my standard car looked on the corner weights (sorry for the crap photo).



LF: 284 kgs RF: 300 kgs
LR: 159 kgs RR: 162.5 kgs
Total: 905.5 kgs (with a tank of fuel and no driver)

Mine are:

FL: 289KG
FR: 303KG
RL: 150KG
RR: 175KG

So a similar distribution on the rear to mine with the RH being heavier. I haven't played around with the ride height at the front yet so it should level out a bit.
