LJ axles in a TJ

Out of curiosity, are there any significant differences in the angle of the mounting hardware and spring buckets on LJ rear axles due to the longer wheelbase? My thought process is this, I'd think that up front all things remain the same between the two models, but would differ in the rear, and have a longer driveline there, thus potentially changing the mount points... more relaxed on the LJ, and more severe on the TJ.

Both axles are the same perhaps the longer wheelbase. Drive shaft is littler longer thought.
