Fits as intended, however, alignment caution on these years of truck.
The front lift basically cranks the torsion bars under more strain, thus lifting the truck by "pushing" down on the front suspension. This causes the camber to go way out. By visual inspection and following up with my GM Service manual, there is NO CAMBER adjustment on these years of heavy trucks. The manual details how to use a knock-out tool to provide the necessary adjustment on the upper arms. I chose to forego the lift at this point as that is a lot of weight for a vehicle with a compromised front suspension. I have no complaints about the kit. My truck us the 9200gvw and needless to say, using the GM torsion bar unloading tool, it requires a lot of oomph and a cheater bar to crank the bars up to get the two inch lift. Do not use a C-clamp.
