81 280ZX 2+2 dash - will it fit an 80 280ZX coupe or will it? What would be the difference?

Also, can a dealership get keys without changing the ignition? (lost key)

81 2+2 springs and struts, will they give an 80 coupe half to an inch lift?

Will the 81 2+2 headlights, tailights and bumpers match with 80 coupe 2+2?

Thanks,
Cowboy

Can's say 100%, but here are my votes
1. Unless I'm having a major senior moment, all dashes from '79 through '83 should be the same, including 2+2 and coupe.
2. Dealerships could once have made keys with just the VIN number, but for a car 20 years old, they may not be able to anymore. However, any locksmith can do it for you for $30-$50.
3. No idea on the spring thing. Buy why would you want to 'lift' a coupe? You gotta stop thinking 4X4s, cowboy!
4. Except for the bumper (and tail light) styling, which changed around the '81-'82 model year, yes, they should fit. Lights and taillights and etc. will all fit.

Basically, just about everything forward of the windshield is the same in a 2+2 and a coupe, and everything aft of about the rear wheels. It's the stuff in the middle that made the 2+2 longer that won't fly in the coupe, including the T-tops, rear windows, etc. Drive train is also slightly different, as the 2+2 had a different, larger clutch than coupe.

Someone please slap me if any of this is bogus!
