I am not saying, that buying a stove makes you a good cook. However,  I bought two identical scales (max. 250 kg) on eBay and used that for corner-weighing.

You have to "calibrate" the scales. Eg. stand on the scales and register the readings. Any deviations have to be compensated for on the later readings.

1. Corner-weighing must be done with anti-rool-bar deattached.

2. Car on scales have to be horizontal.

3. Scales must be "calibrated"

What you can affect is the cross-diagonal weight balance - nothing else. It's like a table with 4 legs. If one leg is too long, the table will be diagonal unstable - no matter what you put on the table.

I use the attached excel spreadsheet for registration and calculation.
