    hey buddy......i saw where you had an older model siilverado on a post on here. i have the torsion keys on my 04' but im lookin for a little more lift & you said you had a 3" body lift on yours. did it mess up your ride quality all that much?

    No i didn't have to trim but i have to watch my tight turns or it does rub on the passenger side. I'm by no means an expert it this area, most everything i've learned on this site. There is a guy who helped me out alot who i know can help you, He's a pro. He has a company out of cali that is called rolling big power and his name is roland. His number is 1-951-272-9090, he's a super nice guy and will totally be able to help you out. Call him, good luck.

    Thanks jimbo, how about that mark ingram:). I'm running 18x9 wheels and 33x12.5x18 tires. Your truck is looking good too, not sure how much wider you could go, you have some pretty big meat on there yourself.

    is that the biggest tires u could get without rubbing and whats ur gas mileage at now with the bigger tires?

    sounds good , I would avoid the body lift if possible but that's just a personal preference, no other reason. Can't wait to see pics!

    That looks like 30mm offset to me. If the outside edge of the tire is rubbing on the inner fender you 'll either need a little more lift or a slightly smaller tire. If you go with the 3" that might make all the difference.

    Dealership's can also request arbitration between themselves and manufacturer's for payment on warranty work, but this isnt a wise move on their part normally because if they piss off the manufacturer they start having problems with manufacturer support for sales, stock, and or future warranty work pay offs.

    I worked with Toyota Motor Corp. parts for 2 years and got to know the system well enough to know warranty work can be a dealerships biggest nightmare and something they dont want to deal with but to keep dealership accredidation and in accordance with federal regulations they have to offer warranty repair.

    Many dont know their rights about warranties and accept the dealership's word, if they forced the issue and took it to arbitration they would more than likely get the issue covered by warranty.

    One part most people dont understand about warranty work is that when a shop performs warranty work the shop is reimbursed by the manufacturer for parts, at dealer cost, and labor usually at a cost of 20% to 30% less than the normal shop rate, so the hours a given mechanic is conducting warranty work are considered non profitable hours, the dealership usually breaks even on that time and parts.

    Additionally every warranty repair is reviewed by the manufacturer for validity, the manufacturer decides if it was a valid warranty repair or not. If not the dealership has to eat the cost of the repair parts and labor, unless they can make you believe the work wasnt covered by warranty.

    Correct.

    The Magnusen Moss Act covers any warrantied item on the vehicle, it places the burden of proof on the dealership performing the warranty work. They have to prove your modification caused the failure. Also under a manufacturers warranty you arent limited to going to the dealer that sold you the vehicle, you can go to any shop associated with that particular manufacturer.

    Non manufacturer speciality or extended warranties are completely different and carry different stipulations that usually have outline proceedures for warranty work in the fine print.

    Yeah, I got a true 2.5 inches. At first it was around 2.75 inches. It rides so much better. It took out the "spongey" feel it had before. The only thing is that is it harder to install than the instructions say. You have to talke off the upper ball joint, and the steering stabilizer. But over all it was well worh it. I'm going to go ahead and raise the back about 3/4 of an inch. That way on camping trips I won't sag as much.
