    Default Silverado 1500 spring swap for 2500 springs

    I've got a 2010 Silverado 1500, but would like to get the lift seen on the 2500 HD's (similar year body style) by swapping the springs out.

    Is anyone aware of other component and/or design changes made to accomodate the angle difference? Are they the same drive shafts, steering links, etc...

    I've searched this forum and the spring swaps mentioned are for older models that have similar spring heights (front & rear)
