difference between 73 and 76 cj5?

I ahve a 73 cj-5 and i have notcied that most lifts and other mods are only made for 76 and up cj5s. what is the difference between the cj5 before and after 76? would a lift for a 76 cj5 work on a 73 cj5?

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.
