'07 tahoe 6'' lift

im going to put on a 6'' lift and 35's on my g/f tahoe and the dealorship is giving her ***** about it saying that all of the warrenty is void. is there any truth to this or is it only void if the mod effects the problem directly??

its only 35's so its not like the 5.3 and the trans is going to have a prob but i wanna know its covered if something goes wrong that needs to be fixed..maybe i jus need to find a mod friendly dealor??:

Find a different dealer. If you plan on wheeling get some tie rod sleeves and maybe cognito braces. Kat gave me a super good deal.

moss-magnuuson act prevents a manufacturer from voiding your warranty, unless they can specifically prove the modifacations you did directly caused the parts to fail.

example, you go to the dealer with a rod hanging out the side of the block.. dealer cant refuse warranty b/c of a lift UNLESS it appears that the engine blew from abuse(mud caked undercarriage etc.)

dont go to a dealer and expect them to warranty broken axle shafts u joints,worn steering parts or diag driveline vibrations(under warranty) with a lift and oversized tiresd/wheels

it is actually at the dealers dicretion to warranty or to deny it... i guess is all depends on the service managers mood, and if the dealerships warranty numbers are to high(when i was a ford tech, the dealership was only allowed to do a certain percentage of warranty vs. non warranty work each month).

best thing to do is get in good with your local service manager. things like telling the owner how pleased you are with the service dept. and taking the service manager to lunch will get you some leverage when it comes time for warranty claims
