Mustang factory and aftermarket weights

For those who would like to know, I've weighed each and every part that I've removed from my latest car. I know I've always been curious about what parts weigh and where to save weight so I figured I'd share the info. I used Intercomp scales which are accurate within .01% so the weights are accurate. Here are the results:


Stock K-member with stock A-arms - 79 lbs
Stock spindle and brakes (V8) - 51 lbs each side
Stock complete 8.8 rear axle (with brakes) - 183 lbs
Complete 8.8 with Mark Williams Ultra lite axles, spool, yoke, bracing, coil over mounts and Aerospace disc brakes - 181lbs
AJE chromoly K-member - 16 lbs
AJE 2" drop spindle - 9 lbs each
AJE tubular control arms with adjustable rod ends - 5lbs each
AJE 150lb coil over spring and strut cartridge - 10 lbs each
Stock front springs (V8) - 10 lbs each
Stock rear springs (V8) - 9 lbs each
Stock front seats and seat brackets - 36 lbs each
Polyethelyne drag seats w/aluminum mounting brackets - 12 lbs each
Stock rear lower control arms - 7 lbs each
Stock rear upper control arms - 3 lbs each
QA1 Proma Star coil over shock assembly - 8 lbs each
Heater assembly - 28 lbs
Sound deadener - 22 lbs
Sound deadening tar (stuck to floors and trund area) - 23 lbs
Aerospace front disc brake assembly (4 piston) - 14 lbs each
15x3.5 Weld Draglite wheel - 10 lbs each
15x10 Weld Draglite wheel - 14 lbs each
26x4.5-15 Mickey Thompson ET Front - 12 lbs each
stock master cylinder - 8 lbs
stock battery - 47 lbs
stock driveshaft - 19 lbs
Aerospace master cylinder kit - 3 lbs
Optima 8022-091 Battery - 35 lbs
Ford Racing aluminum driveshaft - 14 lbs

My daily driver has 16 cylinders and 4400hp @ 1000 rpm....

great idea too. maybe we could sticky a "shipping costs table" in the for sale/wanted forum with prices per weight for shipping from popular companies like fed ex and ups...

Prices change constantly, not really a good idea. Plus, theirs like 4 major companies now and they charge based not only on weight but also package size.

This is a great list for getting started with a weight reduction project.
