Salt is the worst thing to store in your trunk.
It causes all sorts of corrosion problems down the road.
Heck why not use some old leaky car batteries for weight?
They are made from lead and are easily moved around.
Sand is the next worst item to have loose in the trunk
during an accident. If you must put something back there
for weight, at least secure it well so it does not become an
interior projectile during a crash.
