Front axle weight?

I'm doing some thinking on suspension and I'm wondering if anyone knows their front axle weight unloaded? Specifically 4x4.

I just weighed a 04 F250 CCSB 4x4 and the front axle was at 4600 lbs.

Anyone know theirs?

Thanks!

Re: Front axle weight?

Measure the footprint of each front tire in square inches, multiply it by the air pressure in the tire, and add the 2 to get weight of front axle.
