Default in a bit of a crisis, need urgent advise on rear end comparability

I have a 1976 auto l48 on the maintenance block. Just before I put it into storage the rear started making some funny noises and I also had rust holes in the swing arms..

I found a suitable replacement, a complete rear suspension and axle from a 72 as of this morning.. But I have no proof it will or wont bolt into the 76.

Any input would be urgently appreciated as im picking it all up tonight.

thankyou for any advise!
