Often referred to as “corner weighting” or “scaling,” Corner balancing is the adjustment of spring perches on the car to obtain a balanced diagonal weight on the tires using four individual scales. A common analogy for corner balancing is a basic four-legged table. In order to distribute weight evenly, all four legs have to be the same length, but if one leg is shorter than the rest, the whole table becomes unbalanced and wobbly. A car’s wheels function in very much the same way.
