Don't be afraid to install lift or leveling kit, see inside.

By law (Magnusson-Moss Act), neither the dealer or GM can void the warranty simply because the owner installed aftermarket parts. The dealer/GM is required to prove the aftermarket part caused a factory component to fail. In reality, dealers will tell a customer the warranty is void because they don't know the law or don't care. Some customers don't know any different or don't want to go through the hassle of fighting the issue.

GM warranty book says "the use of aftermarket items will void the warranty IF the aftermarket item caused a factory part to fail."

Nowhere does it state the warranty is automatically voided.

So if a Suspension part fails, yeah, they probably wont pay for it. If your engine seizes, they can't argue your leveling kit caused it.
