accessory bracket swap-88 silverado

O.K chevy guys.

The accessory brackets on my 1988 silverado 5.7l are old and are flexing so much now that the serpintine belt rides off center gets rapidly shredded.

I have heard that it is possible to use the all aluminium accessory brackets from a later model 5.7l. I do know that the vortec brackets would require a different alternator and other modifications. I'm not looking to get into too much customization.

Is there a simple swap I could do?
Thanks!
