Weight difference and distributions difference between a 7.3 and a 5.9

I am wondering what kind of weight differences there are in an early model 7.3 Powerstroke and a 5.9 12V. Also, do the V8 and I6 configurations play any kind of role as far as weight distribution? We are thinking about dropping a 12V I have into a 96 F350 crew cab chassis I just happen to have laying around and I am wonder how the suspension will be effected. I have a semi custom suspension idea in mind that includes using new stock coil springs from a two wheel drive F350. My way of thinking tells me if they support a 7.3 just fine a 12V should be a non issue. But I am also wondering about other quirks that might be weight related as well.

That is not as much of a difference that I thought there would be.

The 6.0 is A-Lot heavier than the 5.9. after I installed the 6bt in my 05 250 I noticed it sits up in the front now, So, i'm sure the 7.3 is heavier than the 6.0 so go ahead and do the swap You will NOT be disappointed!
