Default Colorado SS build

I already have this tread in the tbss section but it seems just as fitting here,

I am planning and starting my Colorado ss project, first let me say, I'm a gm mechanic, and have my own family run fab and design shop, modification and parts are not a concern in this build. But I do how ever lack the ability to get my hands on a trailblazer ss to set the pattern for the build, just off gm service info I'm aware that the Colorado 4x4s run completely different front suspensions,

Things that I will be using in this build, I have already found a company who converts tremec t56 six speeds to 4wd all wheel drive tail outputs, I will be using a ls1 bored and stroked out to a 383, unknow ls? Heads and will be twin turboing it

Now things I need to know , does anyone have any photos of actual ss front suspensions(aka control arms front differntal) is the ss front suspenion the same as the normal trailblazer, can the nv149 out of the silverado ss be used in the trailblazers, our the Colorado and the trailblazer frames the same,

I will be posting other questions when they arise
