Thought I would show this thread some love:

According to Doc the stock lug nuts are 3.14lbs.

I bought the acorn black gorrila lug nuts from Apex and they weigh a total of 2.4lbs.

Not that great of a weight diff but thought I would share.

Thought I would show this thread some love. Upgrade to some sway bars last week and thought I would post the weight diff in here:

Stock Rear Sway and bushings: 4.96lbs
Stock Front Sway and bushings:6.78lbs

LSR Rear Sway and bushings: 8.0lbs
LSR Front Sway and bushings: 7.58lbs

I also upgraded to the pfadt trailing arms and outer bushings and I don't remember the exact weights but that saved me another 0.94lbs.

The v6 one for the SS rear end actually weighed 2lbs more. However I still did feel a difference in responsiveness of the car, especially after gear changes.

Do they have different options for the V6 of whether you change gears or not? Like is there a V6 virgin with a V6 rear end I'm assuming that might be lighter

Since I upgraded my rear end to the SS rear end with 3.91s I had to specify that. You can get your basic driveshaft for the v6 through them.

How do you like those 3.91s? Feel they are to short?

Nice write up OP.. I wish someone would do a full all out sheet for the v6 and v8 weight chart vs after market or mod parts. I really am gonna take the fire wall insulation out now after seeing its 2.8 pounds of ugly. Do you know what the metal bumpers behind the plastic covers weigh. I plan to mod them to something lighter like aluminum..
