Same, except for the rear spring shackle.

Taking Auggie's comment a bit farther, the 56 shackle mount is wider.
All you have to do is use 56 shackles, which have a curved profile. The springs and bushings are the same.
There is also a small tab on the 55 frame to mount the lower inner fender. The 56 has one too, but I don't know if it's in the same place. It would be easy enough to move it though.
