The 4-drs were a bit heavier but they should be very close, depending on how each of the cars were optioned out.

Bill- I recommend Espo's Springs & things for new shackles. I have added a secondary leaf to my car from a Mustang II (making my car a 4-leaf) and it worked out well so you might think about that as a low-cost option.

as far as the weight difference, I think the 4 door model can carry more weight, but its only like 35lbs heavier on its own...
