By weighing the sprung weight on our Longacre race scales, we could determine what coil spring rates to run on the Sway- A-Way coilover shocks. With rear tires on the ground the front weighed 3,400 pounds with winch bumper, 2,750 without. As reference, a Duramax crewcab Chevy in the shop had a front sprung weight of 3,370 with winch bumper.
