Default 2004 2wd leveling kit install inof please!!

First off i was curious will it void my warranty? I would like to install a front levelling kit to get rid of the jacked up look lol. I priced an alignment for $85 after i install the levelling kit. I don't wanna void my warranty first off,second off i don't want to mess my ride quality up! Will i need shock extenders or new shocks? Is it really as easy as unbolting the top shock bolts and sliding the spacers in!? PLEASE any info is greatly appreciated! I will order the spacers soon as i get some replies! Also anyone with pics of the kit installed before and after pics with stock wheels? I'm keeping the stock 20's....Oh yeah any certain brand better than the other? And thanks a TON for the info people!!!

Installation instructions are in here, under 'Tech Specs':

I'll see what I can find for pictures of a truck like yours.

I like Daystar's kit. They pride themselves in their polyurethane design, this is from their website:

"No Metal-On-Metal Contact - Daystar uses Polyurethane material in its Leveling Kits for a reason: It's an insulator. It absorbs the Noise, Vibration, and Harmonics (NVH) that come from the suspension and avoids transmitting them to the passenger compartment. All competitors use steel or aluminum in their Leveling Kits. If you were to take apart any factory suspension, you are going to find rubber, polyurethane, and often both in a typical suspension. These pieces are there for a reason; they absorb the NVH. Sure, steel makes a great hammer, but would you want to ride on it?

Lifetime Warranty - All of Daystar's Leveling Kits are backed by a Lifetime Warranty. In the unlikely event you experience a problem with a Daystar product, we'll take care of it."

Your dealership probably won't be too excited if you have one installed. But if properly installed, the kit shouldn't cause any major suspension problems.

I don't think Daystar makes a 2" kit for your truck, but Fat Bob's Garage has them. Check out their website.
