Will a 85-86 3-door rear bumper support work on a 4-door?

The reason I ask is that my 86 RX Sedan (i.e. 4-door) has rear bumper damage (from the previous owner) and there is a 85-86 3-door rear bumper support on eBay here:

Anybody know if this would work?

I'm not sure about the sedan to threedoor interchange, but a bumper from an 87 or later sedan will be more solid than the 85-86 sedan. they are much sturdier. same with the front bumper. I'd go that way.

Yeah, that probably means they weigh more, too...LOL :) Nice to know I have the option of a 87+ bumper, though...thanks. :)
