2008-2013 Tailgate Swap

Recommended Posts

I have a 2008 Silverado 1500 with a original EZ Lift Tailgate that is damaged.  I've found a replacement tailgate that is not EZ lift but the hinges are different.  GM offers hinges to go from a non EZ lift on the truck side to an EZ lift but not the reverse (at least from what I've found).  Does anyone know if I need to change the hinges on the truck bed or is there a kit or bushing I can buy to use the EZ lift hinges that are attached to the truck bed with a non EZ lift tailgate.
