Default Will GroundForce 2" Rear Drop Void My Warranty???

Does anyone have any experience with this? I've had this installed for 5 months now and some people say it might void it and some people say it shouldn't because it's just two springs and two shocks.

You will void the shock and rear spring warranty.
I have same setup on mine asked what if to service manager, shock leaks, its yours. Rear springs sag, its yours. That's it.

Which both need to be changed after 30,000 miles anyways right? So basically it doesn't void anything

if you're really worried about it, buy yourself a set of spring compressors and a jack/ jackstand. Then you can switch it out for what came with your truck stock and bring it to the dealer. I cant imagine anything going wrong with the suspension though

Kooker, Springs don't need changed at 30K, doubtful on shocks.
Astartes, Steering wheel was crooked, they fixed and didn't say anything. GroundForce warranty is good if shocks or springs mess up.

Keep factory, just in case...I cant see them void anything from replacing a spring, shocks are a normal wear item anyway.

After I installed the groundforce I kept the original shocks and springs so I should be alright
