Still waiting on that PM! Okay, assuming OEM #2762 in the rear, they have a spring rate of 300 lb/in. Weight looks to be evenly distributed over the rear axle. Springs compressed 1.41-inches (thanks Adobe Pro). So 846 lbs

You could probably get exact inches if you used the 16" wheel as a reference

I like Giftshopduane's guess, but I'm gonna say that's an easy 6-handle.

So ANR3058 at 208#/in? Then I change my guess to 586.5 lbs. Nah, you wouldn't be running stock springs. I'll stick to 846 lbs.

Dude - go back to school!
(1.23"/1.24") = (16"/ unloaded height).
(1.14"/1.04") = 16"/loaded height).
I even accounted for the fact were standing a few feet further away for that second picture.

It is intentional discrimination for two reasons

1. It's annoying to have to look at all the answers in 2 places
2. Get a Goddamn Facebook account, it's 2015.
