years that swap with 2008 chevy silverado 1500

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know what years with swap with 2008. When it comes to front end and rear end differentials. And can anyone tell me if i can swap suspension and front and rear ends With the 2500.

Rear yes, but will require different rear wheels and drive shaft. Front is a no. Front you are looking at 07.5-13 1500. Rear you can go 99-13 1500, but all 99-04 1500 rears and 07.5-13 1500 with 6.0 and 6.2 will have rear dosc brakes. Also the 07.5-13 6.0-6.2 rears are a 9.5" semi-float instead of the 8.625" semi.

To swap front suspension to a 2500 requires a new frame. You are looking at 2 different suspension systems. The rear, i ran 2500 springs on my 04. To do what you want it will be cheaper to buy a new truck

Thanks man

I was buying a second truck anyways. Only reason i bought the truck is i couldn't pass it up. At 8800 and only 130,000 miles ya know. Do know anything bout suspension upgrades. Thats the main reason i was looking to do all this. I run plow in winter time.

No. We are talking two generations of trucks newer than yours, it's not going to work.
