With the driver sitting inside the cabin and the car on scales, Buck adjusted the rear corner weights. Initial readings revealed 685 pounds over the left-rear tire and 645 pounds over the right-rear. To compensate for this, Buck added tension to the right-rear sway bar endlink until the scale read 675 and 667 over the left and right tires, respectively. For a baseline tune, Buck shoots to get each side within 20 pounds of the other. For a drag car, the difference in weight between the front-left and front-right is inconsequential. Weight on the left-front will transfer to right-rear during a wheelie, but this effect is greatly reduced if the front tires stay on the ground.
