2 Door / 4 Door Frame Difference

I have to replace both rear upper shock/spring mounts on my frame. Is there any difference between 2 door and 4 door frames other than length?

Thanks

On your 70 the length in the middle is different, 64 - 67 are the same.

I don't have replacements yet. I found a good deal on a 72 frame. Don't know if it's a 2 or 4 door. I'm waiting to hear back from the guy.

Well so much for that. The guy pulled the add. He wanted $300 for the frame, suspension parts, a hood and good front and rear bumpers. No wonder it didn't last.

A local auto wrecker has some mounts for $100/ea. I found another guy a couple hours from here that has a bunch of Chevelles, including 12 documented big block cars in various states of repair. He won't sell any of them but will sell me the odd part or two.

Good to know. Shipping to Canada might break me though.
