Leaf spring interchange 79 omega 2dr

So had my driver leaf break on way home and passenger I'm sure is not far behind my question is although they look the same is there any major difference in leaf springs from a 2dr and a 4dr? a friend has a 4dr that is wrecked but the leafs are only a couple years old they were replaced shortly before the accident and car has been on a cement pad in a barn since we looked and measured the best we could and they seem the same but was not sure if there was a difference that would cause an issue? We are already planning to pull the rear diff out to install in mine being his was changed to posi so kind of were thinking if leafs will work we will pull everything out as one and swap it all in one shot. Thanks in advance

The 1975-79 X-body cars (Nova, Omega, Ventura, Apollo) all use the same leaf springs.

Thanks for the info guy's much appreciated springs are in although they were lowering springs so car's rear dropped rather irritating but beggars can't be chooser's as they say so put lift shackles in to counter that and get a normalish ride height back once fund's allow it will be getting new springs just taking what I can get at the moment part wise. Now off to solve tire size dilemma going from 14 to 15 and deciding what looks right and will clear on all four corners lol the 205 14's just looked to damn small and were riding on sidewall more than the tread.
