Silverado 2500 hd vs 3500 hd difference

Legally per the weight tags on the door jamb, the payload, RGAWR and GVWR don't change if you had a 2500hd and added the 3500hd helper springs. 

In practically sense, yes it would equal it to a 3500hd from the factory.  

Please link or cite a state or federal statue that says the manufacturer’s GVWR cannot be exceeded by law. In some states, you can register at higher or lower GVWRs. For non-commercial applications, weight is rarely, if ever, enforced. For non-commercial applications, what is enforceable?  Serious questions here as there’s a lot of stuff posted on the matter but I’ve not found any citations of specific law that addresses this.
