Usuallly this is not a good idea. The best way to see if they are interchangeable is to have both numbers looked up at a GMC dealership as they are not likely to make two valvle bodies that can interchange. Valve bodies are very sensitive to spring and fluid pressure and any small change in a port will cause problems.
