Can someone do me a favor????

I have a set of rear stock springs (3 leafs plus helper spring)I am trying to sell to someone....I need to figure the weight of them.Does anyone know what they weigh so i can figure shipping??...I hate to drag these things down to UPS to get a quote and I dont have anything to weigh them on.

Re: Can someone do me a favor????

what you might want to do is get a broom, some string , a bucket and 20 1 pound bags of sugar.
1.)Take 36" of string and tie it to one side of the stick, then tie the pail to it.
2.) Now tie another piece of string to the other end.
3.) Find the mid point by balancing the broom poll on your index finger.
4.)Mark this point for future reference.
5.)Tie a leaf springs to the other side now.
6.) Add each bag of sugar into the pail.
7.) when you have reached the 20th bag and it is ballanced, you will know the weight buy doubling it.

I was hoping someone knew what they weighed or had one lying around and a scale to weigh it on

got a bathroom scale? Weigh yourself (naked for a more accurate reading) then pick up the springs and weigh yourself again, the difference is the weight of the springs

Dont have a bathroom scale...never really cared what I weighed.But looks like I might invest in some for things like this..

Oh....and wouldnt I look funny when my wife walked in and I am butt naked with a set of Zuk springs in my hand [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

She already says I love my Zuk more than her....this would only put icing on the cake [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm, how does weighing yourself without cloths make it more acurate? Do cloths change weight when worn?

40 lbs? You have way too much time if you can write up somthing like that to twist our minds! Time that could spent wheelin' or replacing broken parts.
