I don't see why it wouldn't, the only thing different about the 2012 is the front clip and interior. The box and running gear is all the same, go get it done! I did recently and did not regret getting rid of those weak, squeaky ass SOB's it had under it before!

It seems that many people don't know how to count them. If you have 3 curved and 1 flat, you have the updated springs (that counts as 4). The 2012 4WD I saw in the showroom had 4.

To me, the handling was off-balance after I got mine done, so I put Bilstein 5100's on with the front set at 0.85 and it evened it out having a little more pre-load on the front.

My 2012 reg cab came with 3 pack. Truck sagged w/ leer shell, so after bugging the dealer for 2 months TSB was approved. Getting installed right now

I emailed the service head today. Told me it DOES NOT apply to 2012's and to bring it in with a load in the bed and they's explore options. BS. I will stay on this, same damned truck, same problem. Although I did read where other 12 owners have had woth it by being persistant, they haven't met persistant yet!

I think people miss the point of what Technical Service Bulletins are about. They aren't magical wishes that automatically grant the customer free parts. If you are experiencing a harsh ride go to the nearest dealer and say, "I am experiencing a harsh ride when the bed of the truck is loaded. Is there something that can be done to fix this issue?"

Just picked up my '09 AC TRD from the dealer after TSB. Has 11,000+ miles and originally sold 2 years and 10 months ago. Made it under the warranty window by two months. FYI - even an extended warranty wouldn't have qualified if I'd run past the 3 years.

Hit the neighborhood speed bumps at the usual pace, no significant difference.

After a bounce the rear settled in at 1.5" higher than when I took it in this morning.

Measured 33" from ground to bottom of tailight lens before and 34.5" now.

The leaf spring TSB is not about getting free parts. It is about having a pickup truck that can haul over 300lbs without it bottoming out.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

Remember, all Canadians use a different unit of measure. It's more like 500 pounds American.
