Does this kit fit a 2012 GMC Sierra Crew Cab 4x4 All Terrain with Rough Country 3" lift (so 3" blocks)
With this kit, if you have added a lift block to the rear end of the truck, you will have to add an airbag spacer of the same lift denomination to this kit. If you have the 3" rear block you will need either a 30001 non tapered or a 30002 tapered depending on if the lift block is tapered or not.

Perfect load leveler
The air bags are perfect for eliminating the squat from heavy loads! Installation was easy and the kit quality is top notch. The truck sits completely level with almost a 1,000 pound tongue weight. Awesome product and highly recommended!

Nice product, installation was not too bad.
Installation took closer to 4 hours, but that was without a rack or lift and just crawling under truck. So far am happy with the product but have not towed too much yet. Seems like a good value.
