Walk into the dealership that you would use if you ever need warranty work and ask the shop manager, thats the only way to be sure! The guy at my local dealer said the 2.5 leveling kit is ok in his book and would not void any warranty. I also asked about tire size, he said one tire size up would be ok but anything more than that could lead to problems. Keep in mind that lifts or tires don't void all warranty, only the broken parts that could be cause by your mods.

And they don't have to prove anything, if you mod anything it is subject to void the warranty on the parts you mod. It is at the discretion of the dealer. being nice and getting to know your service techs has it's advantages!!!!

Just a few thoughts. Talking to a shop manager won't net you anything unless its in writting (which you will never get). He can tell everything that you want to hear (and he may have good intentions) but he can be replaced at anytime. Then all you are stuck with is "well he said she said stuff".
Secondly if they do try to deny a warranty and you dispute it then yes it will come down to them proving that the parts you installed lead to the failure of the warrantied parts in question, thanks to the magnuson moss warranty act.

That all sounds good in theory but the bottom line is they decide if your mod voids your warranty or not. I have dealt with a few warranty issues at work in and it's very easy to find reason to warranty something or not warranty something! If they think your mod caused the failure I promise you that you are SOL!

Not having any waranty issues yet I will have to take your word on that. Depending on the issue, they would have one hell of a fight to deal with.
