Measuring downforce using headlight level sensor

Has anyone tried doing this? I know we can monitor realtime voltage of front and rear leveling sensors using INPA.

I assume you can place various weights in trunk and engine bay to calibrate voltage to weight, then hit the road at 60mph, 100mph, and measure average voltage of those sensors.

Wowie - haven't heard this potential measuring process before; hopeful this will be answered.
