front weight bar increments
« on: May 30, 2018, 12:06:45 PM »
 MAking some weight bars for front of car and wondering how small increments that will make difference in front end lift. Understand no two exactly the same with all variables  like engine , chassis, gear ,tire and how aggressive you are to name few.

 Just so happens big old steel bar laying here weights lb per inch and 5" is about perfect for nose  mounting point.Hate cutting up more than need,have been beating and welding project on this old thing for 30 years.  While might have to add weight would rather not add more than need to make things work best. Question is five pound increments  a small enough.
