It's very unusual to have such a high weight difference.
Did you buy this pistons separate or as a set of 4?

Do not remove the steel pads, they control the expansion of the piston.

You could weigh the connecting rods and pair the heaviest piston with the lightest rod.

Otherwise try to get a set of pistons that is closer on the weight tolerance.
