Hello, since the 5.3 had a shorter flange on the rear of the crank you will need a spacer and bolts, you should be able to reuse your 6.0 flexplate but I'll put the part numbers below for what I know works in this application.

12563532 SPACER

19257940 BOLTS 6

19260102 FLEXPLATE

If you want to skip spacers and use an aftermarket flexplate there's more info HERE

My goal is to provide 5 star service. Rating/accepting does not cost extra and ensures I'm credited for my time and knowledge. It also does not close your question if you have a follow up concerning this. Thank you for using Just Answer!
