So, I have 180lbs of sand in my trunk, typically. It's all on the right side of the trunk because of the open differential. I used a bag to get a friend out of a jam today, then bought another 180lbs a half hour ago.
Now there's 300lbs from the center to the right side. My question is: Does 300lbs of static weight over the rear right wheel cause unnecessary wear to the shock tower? Oh, it's putting more strain on the engine to some degree no matter how minute, right? But then I keep going to the perspective that it's like having two other people in the car...
I am likely going to put 120lbs into the garage as a backup and leave the remaining 180lbs in there for the rest of winter, as I've been doing thus far. With 300lbs in the trunk the car feels somewhat more sluggish (obviously), but I'm just happy to hear the Borlas roar after a few days of not driving
