ARP studs and ford warranty??????????

well, dropped the truck off this morning to get an axle seal replaced under the 3yr/36k warranty so i also asked them to check out where the coolant came out the degas bottle. keep in mind this isnt my usual ford dealer i take warranty work to but it was convenient to take it there cause it was on my way to work. well sure enough i went to pick it up after work and they said the head gaskets are blown so i asked them about putting the arp head studs in and the tech told me he wouldnt advise it with so low miles (a little less than 34,000) cause if they blew with the arps, the engine warranty would be no good for that. so is that true on the warranty issue?

technically if they put the arps in ... and the heads blow again then no, they would not have to cover it cause they aren't ford parts.

well imma talk to my usual tech from the other dealer whenever i can get ahold of him and see if he tells me if he will cover it if it ever happens again. if he will, then i will go pick it up from this dealer and take it to my usual one.

if you only have 2k left on your warrenty, id be willing to bet that you would not have to worry about going back for warrenty work. id do the studs

im getting them put in on mine and i only have 30k miles on it ... but the dealer who is putting them in will help me out with the warranty if something were to go wrong after the studs ... so if you know the tech then it should be ok.
