end of 2x12 goes on the scale

other end is suspended by short 2x4

car wheel goes in the middle of the 2x12, towards the 2x4. the closer to the 2x4, the less weight is on the scale

put the wheel in the same place on every 2x12 and you can determine the proportional weight imbalance

if you know the weight of the car, sum the scale readings to determine the reduction factor

on my car the reduced amount was from 140 to 195 lbs on each wheel

having said all that, corner balancing is still the proverbial b!tch
