does anyone know what the difference between the two is? The springs on my '75 are flat and I was wondering if some from a 76 would work, or is there some from GM, Ford, or Chysler that would fit?

The ones from the 76 will not work as they are a different size that the ones from a 75. 75 was the last year of the old post mount style springs and they are different than the 76 and up springs. However, the front springs will transfer over, just the rear ones will not fit.

The mid 70's 52" long chevy truck replacements will work for you but you will have to have the FSJ bushings pressed into them for the post mount setup.
I run the Triangle Spring replacements with 2 1/2" of lift with a 2" block to keep it level with the front. Here is a link to the shops in MI that carry the Triangle line...

...I'm not promoting any of theses shops but it never hurts to check several places to see what they are willing to do for you.
