Are the 4 door tail lamps the same as the 2 door lamps?

I ordered on ebay a right rear tail lamp assembly for my 97 geo.
When the package arrived I was so pleased at the condition of the replacement Light assembly.
The next day I went to install it. Looking at the inside portion of the assembly, the replacement has the lamps staggered in configuration. My tail light assembly has the lamps in a straight horizontal line. The replacement is taller then mine.

On '97 Metros "Are the 4 door tail lamps the same as the 2 door lamps?"

No. Not even close.

Headlight bulbs are different for 95 and 96. Ill bet 97 is too. The housings still swap in but you'll need pigtails for the newer bulbs.

Early is h4. Late (98+) is 9007
