unfortunately that is a result of using an insert; doubling up canister material, added locating bolt, threaded locating plate that the bolt fastens too, etc.

while some people would contend that the unsprung weight is detrimental for suspension performance the truth is that the increase relative to the rest of the OE unsprung weight is for all practical reasons insignificant
