Warranty question

I need to go in a get my steering wheel replaced under warranty but I have a leveling kit with 35s. Will this make them void anything or take note of it for future issues?

Depends on the dealer, but I wouldn't think the steering wheel would get too much scrutiny. You're under the 3yr/36k mile warranty?

Yah still under 3/36 almost up. I was there a few wks ago and they ordered me a new steering wheel now I just need to go back to have them put it in. Should I just throw my old weeks back on?

I don't think it'll matter but if you think it's necessary, what will it hurt to put the stockers back on?

You shouldnt have any issues. For them to void the warranty they would have to prove that your upgrades directly resulted in the parts failure. Your having a steering wheel replaced, you should be fine.

I just don't want to have something like a tranny issue down the road and have them void it b/c I went in with bigger tires this time.

Correct and there was a court case over this: Magnuson-Moss Act
