Thinking core support.

Is the core support the same for trucks with the silverado grill/headlamps as the ones with the sealed beam big headlamps?

I've got the big sealed beams, thinking of swapping, worried about the core.

I've had both silverado and sealed beam trucks side by side stripped down and the core supports are the same. I was gonna fit the silverado front end to my HD but decided to keep the sealed beams as I think they look tougher!
