Leaf Springs... Mechanical Advice

Hello,
Will leaf springs from a 2008 GMC 2500 HD with 6.0 fit my 2008 GMC 1500 with a 5.3?
Thanks...

Squeks, best thing to do is measure them. Use new bolts and hardware. Might be surprised at how reasonable a spring shop can put new in.
Spring shop would be my first option.

The United States of America has the greatest people on earth.

might not lift it but you could haul more without any sag. just don't get caught with to much

if you bought it, a trucker brought it

Not sure about the new body style trucks, but once upon a time I swapped my silverado 1500 springs out for 2500hd springs and they fit fine but the ride was quite harsh in the rear end. I ended up changing back to stock springs and installed helper springs.
