Question 2010 Headlight Swap

anyone know of any reason why these headlights would not work on a 2010 model?

2005-2009 depo headlight

the depo website lists the 2010 model as having only one headlight available for purchase, but 2009 has 3 different ones, one of them being the same one as the 2010 year... doesnt make sense to me that they wouldnt fit, but i see them listed as excluding the 2010 model on each site/auction... they look like they would work anyways

I've got those lights!

I'm not sure why they wouldnt work, but I would assume there is a reason for it. Sorry!

One thing you might try is comparing part numbers for OEM headlights from the 05-08 with the ones for 09-10. If they match, I think it'd be a sure bet.

---------- Post added at 06:52 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:00 PM ----------

I did some checking around for OEM headlamp part numbers and this is what I found:
OEM #25784531 Partslink #GM2502251

RockAuto also listed the GM number above, showing compatibility 2005-2010. It doesn't appear that specs changed, so I would think any aftermarket part would be identical between the years. I'd go for it.

Yeah I saw the same thing with the 05 thru 10 ones. I can't see any reason why they wouldn't work, so I'm gonna get em
