In general-Aftermarket parts of any sort do not auto-viod the warranty. The dealership must prove a relation between the malfunction and the modification.

Soo...Replace whatever you'd like...you can also keep the stock parts to fill them back in if something does go wrong....

It is against the law for a dealership to void a warranty unless said aftermarket (unsupported) part was the cause of the problem.

Full information regarding the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
