Hi!
I'm making a study about this car for my university and I need to know the load capability that each axle can stand.In other words, how much load can I put on the rear axle and how much on the front axle?
Do you know it?

You can find the GAWR on a sticker on the backside of the driver's side door when you open it.

I need the data that you can find in the sticker in the door! Is the value of load that you can safely put on the axles of your car. If you know it you will help me a lot! Thanks! Mattew
