Removed 3rd Row; Weight Impact

I just removed the 3rd row from my Commander and put it on a scale to see how much it weighs because it seems heavier than the 3rd row seat in my wife's '06 Suburban. The sumb!tch weighs 102lbs. Oddly enough, now that I've removed 102lbs which were directly over the rear axle, the rear sits higher and the truck has a pronounced downward slope like a muscle car almost. The telling sign is the gap between the tire and fender; the imbalance of the spacing now is very disproportionate.

Did you put it back? Leave it out? Adjust for slope?

Not going to put it back. Not sure how I could adjust the slope without putting in some kind of spacer kit on the front only. The other option would be to find 100lbs in the engine bay/front end that I could remove, but since that gets pretty expensive I'll have to rule that out.

I am wanting to do the same thing. I have been considering this for a while.
Another thread, someone made a hatch cover for the well and kept supplies and gear in it.

I expect you will need to adjust the headlights now. I will mark my lights before I start. How deep is the well from the seat?
