Lift Kit for 2010 Silverado

Lift Kit for 2010 Silverado

Postby SilveradoK9 [OP] » Mar 27 2011, 6:01pm

Im thinking about putting a 4" lift on my truck. I have a few questions. 1. Will it void warranty. 2. What size rims/tires could I get with the lift kit.

when i was purchasing my 2011 i asked the salesman if i lifted my truck would it void the warranty. he said no. he said the only thing it may void is like ball joints. i dont think gm would approve of it, but things like this kinda depend on the dealer itself. they are the ones working on the truck. not gm themselves. some dealers follow the rules to a t. and some will bend them. my dealer said i can do whatever i want pretty much as long as my upgrades are bolt on. such as lift kit. cai. cat back exhaust. obviously you cant go cut your cats off or put a different intake manifold in or bolt up a super charger.

and as far as tire size with a 4" they reccomend 33" as the max. but i have seen 4" lifts with 35"s under them so idk if it depends on the brand of lift? i am lookin at a readylift for my truck. its 4" in the front. 1.75" in the rear. allows 33" tire according to them. seems to be a pretty cool lift. allows you to use your factory shocks. go to readylift.com to read about it.

With a 4 in lift 33's will be best. If you try and shove 35's you will have to trim big time and you will still rub. And I looked into this matter on warranty because I to want to lift my 2010. And yes it will void. If you take anything stock off the truck and replace it with after market technically it's now void. And I don't know of anything lift that's above 4 in that docent replace the knuckles. Like above mentioned some dealers will look the other way with some things like catbacks and intakes but from my experience if the dealer isn't the one that installed the lift there going to tell you to take a hike. At least in central Texas. I hope this helps you. Good luck.

Ps check out superlift.

I get what you are trying to say, I think, but it's not completely true. The entire warranty will not be void. GM may not honor warranty for your driveline if you do a lift, due to all the geometry changes, for example--but would still honor other parts of the warranty, like the engine.
Also, as we have discussed several times, GM cannot void your warranty simply for the use of aftermarket parts. Example, if you use a WIX filter instead of AC/Delco, they cannot void your engine warranty.

But I do agree with Browny, in that certain alterations could cause GM to not warranty parts of the vehicle that were changed...in other words, it may give them an "out".

there are many options and outcomes to this question. it really just depends on the relationship you have with your dealer. my dealer said the only thing that might get voided from a lift is your ball joints. the ready lift seems to be a very well engineered lift that maintains as much of your factory specs as possible. it has front diff drop brackets to keep the angle of your cv axles the same. shock drop brackets so you can use your factory shocks. 4" extended upper control arms to maintain the proper cam angle. and a extended skid plate for your front diff. you can read all about them at readylift.com or you tube it and there is a video from them

I really like the readylift cause of its price and it looks easy to put on. but i really want 35" tires. and readylift will only fit 33" but a real 4" will fit 35's
