Actually, I saved quite a bit more that two pounds in the rear. Early tourings had a hydraulic self leveling suspension. As it happens it tied into the power steering system so when your 20+ year old strut fails so does the power steering. Removing that system probably took 50+lbs from the car, and seeing that one strut on its own was $800 I went the more economical route and swapped in the sedan H+R Sports and the Koni's for $750. I got the springs as a set, so I need to install the fronts, but with the 5 speed on the way I'd rather not dump "cubic dollars" on the car right now.
