It would be a big help if we knew the year of your car.

Less weight = going faster.

I figured I'f I'm doing lower control arms with brackets and sway bar brackets I'm not gonna notice NVH from not having weights. Might get NVH from other places but I also don't really care.

Apparently the engineers thought so.
Believe they are meant to dampen and/or prevent noise and vibration as the result of harmonics, natural frequencies and that sort of thing.
Once you change gear ratios, wheel/tire diameter, etc, they may do little to nothing to cancel out certain harmonics or frequencies, since changes have been made that have changed the natural frequencies.
