    On my 72 the rear is the same as 73.
    The front is different though.

    the fronts are 3" longer on '73-up. I didn't realize this and put some on my '72 blazer.
    it moved my front axle back 1 1/2" and put the spring hangers at an extreme angle.
    this messed up the steering geometry and WAS NOT A GOOD THING!
