Hi, i'm new to the forum and was wondering if anyone knows if a body lift will void any warranty on the diesels. i have a 2009 Chevy Silverado LT 2500HD Crew Cab Z71 4x4. i heard someone say before that a body lift will void it. tried to ask the dealer but they wont give me a direct answer. thanks in advance for the info.

Dont get a body lift. If you are gonna do a lift get a suspension lift

if you are looking for a cheaper alternative for a lift, you could always get a leveling kit

DUDE!! you don't even know!!!! a dealership in thunder bay ontario quoted 4500 for a body lift install something like 600 for the lift and the rest labor.... I Know this sounds crazy but for real!.... i asked and asked to make sure we were on the same page....I even called back the next day and same thing they said they just did a red one last week and yeah we were talking about the same thing...

I've seen the body lift on several of the LMM diesels and they don't look too bad. everyone I know running one already had the 6" suspension kits. They run decent too and don't have the over heating problems some of the older models have...they are a super pain in the ass to install though....

Are you talkin about a 3 inch body lift and 6 inch suspension???

why the heck would you want to pay 2X the labour or more for installation of both when you could have yourself a 9 inch susp lift???
