Differences include, but not limited to: Open "C" channel frame VS boxed, narrower springs, shorter springs, different floor pans, dashes, steering columns, fuse boxes, rear axles (44 vs 20) seating frames, windshields, most hinges, ....the list goes on...
Unless you want to cut and weld.....get springs for the pre 76 CJ's.
