Default Vehicle Weight - Balancing

Hey,

I've made a little balancing stand so I can see if my vehicle is heavy on the left or right side.

However, I'm wondering should I be doing a front to back balance? If so how can you do this? And is it better to run more weight in the front or back or keep it even?

I have been using scales for some time, much easier than a tweak board. A little more expensive maybe but sourcing them at harbor freight or ebay can get you a pretty good deal. I would reccomend buying 5 or 6 of the same, the scales are all cheaper and tend to go bad after a year or two, I am on my second set of scales.
