Saw this vid where they did some extensive corner-weighting procedures after a coilover upgrade to balance the car to improve handling.




Seems like quite time consuming. Labour costs are going to be high i reckon.

Market rate forthis is about 400-500, half to 1 day job depending on how screwed ur weight balance is.

LTM recently got the gadget for doing this.

Honestly, there's no need for this unless your car is lightened and you're racing for a living, or you're too rich ;D

+1 as a waste of time for most users, especially if you ever have passengers in your car, which will of course change the weight again over each wheel.

If you're very careful about matching up the ride heights from side to side, most people can get by just installing coilovers and getting an alignment done. Of course, if you're this kind of person you really shouldn't have purchased coilovers in the first place. Lowering springs and aftermarket shocks are much cheaper and more reliable than coilovers.

For anyone who purchased coilovers for their true purpose (motorsports) $400 is a perfectly reasonable amount to spend on tuning the $2500+ (decent) coilovers... just like how the $700 Accessport is a perfectly reasonable tuning option for anyone installing a $1500 TBE.
