Default Leveling kit question

I'm thinking of getting a leveling kit for my 2011 dodge ram 1500 2wd. Will the leveling kit void my warranty on my truck? Also does a leveling kit eat my tires away because I heard from one of my friends it does.. Please help!!

I'm not sure what leveling kits are out there for a 2wd truck. Contact Andrew or Jeremiah at Discount Auto Performance. I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with that.

As far as warranty goes, no it will not void your warranty. Obviously the dealer won't cover the leveling kit and there's a possibility they won't cover any front end parts that wear prematurely because of the leveling kit. But everything else will still be covered.

Sounds to me like your friend didn't get a front end alignment after having his kit installed. You will definitely need to get one after lifting the front end. Then your tires will be fine.

Mopar actually offers a levelling kit - not sure about fit for a 1500 2wd but the power wagon has a lift on it which may be the same and fit... mopar part - mopar installed - full warranty

I just installed the Traxda or Truxxx brand 2" level a few days ago and love it. Im picking up some 33" offroad rubber this weekend also. Yes a "good" front end alingment is needed. We aligned the truck after the install then aligned it again today now that everything has settled.

I had a daystar on my 09 and rode good and no abnormal tire wear. If you have the money the CST is what I wanted for my 2wd
