Control Arm Interchangeably?

Will the Upper and Lower control arms interchange from a '78 C-10 to an '87 ?
I have access to a set off a '78 and to shorten Down-Time on my D.D. I was thinking about cleaning up and rebuilding the ones off the '78 before I do the Spindles and Spring drop on my '87.

Yes, they'll interchange.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Thanks for the reply.
I also verified Moog bushing kits and Dorman ball joint part #s are the same.
