    Default Chevy 09 Z71 4x4 Leveling Kit.

    hey i was wondering about everyones opion on this. i want to either level my truck out or put a lift kit on. i really dont wanna drop 3k in lift kit then another 3k in tires. i was wondering what size tires i could put on my truck with just a levling kit. i wanna try and keep my stock rims but go to bigger size maybe? anybody had luck with installing this item. i am not very good in this department of installing it. who would i take this too? or would i lose my factory warranty as well?

    Just so you know if you put a kit on your truck you will void the factory warranty on it. I would call a couple of local dealers and ask them, but I am sure of it here in Buffalo. GM claims it wears out the ball joints and other front end parts prematurely.

    if it voids the warranty why does everyone do it?

    If you put a 2 inch leveling kit you will be able to run up to a 33 inch tire with a 18 in wheel. You can have installed for around $100 dollars and then whatever they charge to align it. Take to a offroad shop in your area and no it doesn't void your factory warranty. Readylift makes a good one.

    yeah i agree it has to void warrany as it cheanges out factory parts. i know that you can put 33 inch tires on. i have a seen a few pictures on this site that looks really good. there a guy on here that just put the new tires on his 09 with the leveling kit looks good. thinking about screwing the warranty and doing it. i just have to sell the tires to get the wife to agree. i only drive 5 miles a day on this truck anyways.
