Unsprung weight is weight that is not supported by the springs. Like the rear end, tires, wheels, brakes ect ect
Sprung weight IS supported by the springs: body, engine, tranny, ect ect

The control arms, and annything that is attached to both gets its weight split between the two.

Removing unsprung has a greater benefit since it doesnt really do anything....
