so, i can put 20 blocks in my trunk. each weighing 30lbs and car should ride level? thats with no passengers or luggage or such. am casually contemplating hauling some blocks from my house to relatives house. only a thought. really dont want to do it. am pretty sure the spare tire cover will not like it. maybe 5 or 6 blocks each trip?
I put a piece of cardboard down to protect carpet and then a chunk of plywood if I have to carry anything heavy like that so it don't mash the cover in. Block them so they don't slide(no pun intended). Sucks when the slide around

Re: load leveling?
Even a cinder block does not weigh close to 30 pounds ....... A 30 pound brick would be made of something denser than lead ...........
20 or 30 good ol' building bricks might weigh 100 pounds........ no sweat, because you can easily carry two 200 pound passengers in the rear seat .........
EDIT: Saw Ranger's post - Come to think of it, I've had four 40# bags of bird feed and 20# of grass seed in the trunk - 35 mile trip - no problems here, either. (We're on well water, too - and I sure am glad we don't need a water softener.)
