Just bought Readylift Stage 3 for my '13. Warranty issues after install?

New proud owner of '13 F-250 Platinum. Got a great deal on a new Readylift Stage 3 kit (2011-2013 Ford Super Duty F250 Stage 3 SST Lift Kit).

One question: Will the install void part of or any of my factory warranty? I just have the basic 3 year/36,000 bumper-to-bumper plus the 60,000 mile powertrain.

Thanks

Probably....but really...what is there to go wrong? The suspension really isn't a big deal to me warranty wise. The drivetrain...that's a different story.

The only thing I would throw out would be the shock extenders...just buy some shocks suited for the correct length. I also didn't see any caster adjustment cams in the kit. You will need those to get your caster back or the truck will be all over the place. When I did my Carli kit, I put in caster shims, and adjusted my 3 links to give me 5 degrees of caster which seems to be good for mine.

Hope this helps.

I would rather not buy new shocks if not necessary, it came with upgraded Rancho shocks and they seem to be doing fine. I'll look into the caster adjustment cams, I'm a newbie to suspension, especially on super dutys. Thanks for the help so far.

You purchased a brand new top of the line truck in the upper 50k to lower 60k dollar range.

Why would you cut corners and install cheap budget savings accessories on it, especially regarding something as important as the suspension? If you can't do it right then don't do it at all. I'd wait until you can purchase a full quality kit like Carli, Icon, BDS, etc.

Ever consider that I went slightly over my budget and now I do not have a ton of money to throw into the truck? We all come from different situations. I've heard great reviews on Readylift kits. I'm happy with my purchase.

Virtually anything wrong on your front end can now be blamed on the fact that you installed aftermarket suspension parts. There's no getting around that if the dealership doesn't feel like doing work under warranty. I agree with the castor adjusters and different shocks. The Ranchos are junk and I'm glad mine are no longer on my truck.
