No they will not work. Even though they look similar the spring rates between the a c10 and an escalade very different.

It would be like a low rider which will make it looks as if you slammed it

Spring rates are different due to the weight difference between a c10 and the Escalade. Springs from a c10 will flatten like a pancake under the weight. There a few companies that make drop springs for an escalade and go further with choices stock air suspension or swap to non air shocks.

Not good having it so close to the wheel well as if it hits you wouldn't like the results

Is yours 2WD? You can get a 5" drop but only on a 2WD. With 4WD the shafts and u joints are way to stressed passed a 3" drop.

If you still have the 5" springs from the c10 I would be interested in them, I know we can't deal on this forum but there should be a way to discuss this. Thanks in advance
