73+ bucket seats fit 72?

I think there was a topic on this but I found some 73+ low backs that look very similar to 72s. What will I need to modify and will covers fit from 72?

I believe the seat brackets are taller but the seat frame and foam is the same.

I think it is the other way around the seat frames are the same foam is different and the seat brackets are also different.

PUI list the foam as the same until '75.
I installed '72 covers on PUI foam as my foam was in terrible condition.
