I have been reading several different websites and compiling information that was consistantly reported. If I was leary about the information I didn't use it. I originally was searching for my own purposes and realized there wasn't really a one stop place for all this information, so I decided to do something for my community. If there is any major discrepencies please let me know and I will adjust. Also I am sure there is some things I have missed or couldn't find, so I would appreciate that information as well.

some of those numbers dont sound right, and the cradle is nowhere near 250, in fact the tubular one listed would weigh more than the actual stock one
Untill verified, I will take it out. Thanks.

Are those arms an economical weight loss with the cost of those spring perches that are custom parts? I have thought about buying them though, but the cost of the spring perches seems prohibitive.

Anyone want to venture a guess at what the whole of the dash assembly weighs? Unfortunately, I took mine out in peices with cutting tools. I should have wighed it. I would guess that it's a 100lb unit.
Also intesting to see would be fold-down vs regualr rear seats, exhaust systems, sound systems, carpets and plastic, etc.
I dont suppose anyone was diligent enough to collect all of the sound deadener and weigh it? Mine was mostly turned to dust. :(

I'm in the process of taking out all the sound deadener, by heating it up and scraping it out....I'm throwing it all into a box, and will weigh it when done.

Also, the dash is not a 100 lbs....I my self can take the dash in and out of the car myself, if it was a 100lbs, I don't think I could.
