Will a 2 inch Leveling Kit Void the Warranty?

Just wondering if anybody knows what ford's take is on a 2 or 2.5 inch leveling kit for the front coil springs? I really want to install one and run 35inch tires, but I'm affraid of voiding the factory warranty. I've heard that there is actual case law, stating that vehicle manufactures can not void warranties on vehicles that have suspension lifts as long as they were installed by professionals??? Let me know what your opinions are. Thanks

Im pretty sure that if you get it installed by a legitimet shop then your warranty will be fine. I know that they will sell lifted trucks off the lot and they still have full warranty.

Yeah, I've seen this in my area too with dealerships selling the trucks with lifts already in them, but I dont need any problems with this warranty. Truck was WAAAAY too expensive to be fooling with the warranty already. I wont even think about messing with the motor yet. Not at least for 5 yrs. I will do some research with the local ford dealer and see what kind of response I get.

Cool, just got the ok from my local ford dealership that I bought the truck at to do the leveling kit and wheels and tires without voiding the warranty:cool2: That makes me happy because that is one of the only mods that I really look forward to doing...

On a stock rim, how skinny of a tire and how much triming????

You dont have a leveling kit at all on your truck? Looks good in the pics! Looks like you have the stock 20 inch wheels... What kind of 35 inch tire are you running? 35x12.50.20 im guessing is the size right?

i ended up getting a leveling kit just for looks - but youre right on the money as far as the wheels and tire size. i also replaced the rear stock blocks with a set of f-350 blocks, since the 2.5" kit actually made the front higher than the back on my truck.

right out of the wty manual. if the modification causes the problem then the mod. is at fault not the unit. for example. if you have a driveline vib. ford wont pay to have it fixed.
