You'll have to be more specific as to what years you want to swap...., as styling year breaks are C/K series '81-87 and GMT400 series '88-98.
Body Parts do not interchange between those two different Series of trucks.

1981-87 styling was carried on until 1991 on the Suburban, before it was switched to the GMT400 chassis.

With a MIG, a cutting torch, a hand grinder and a Sawzall, you can make anything fit anything.
