Suspension sag from bumper

I bought a relentless fab bumper and it should be here sometime this week. I am running a stock suspension right now. How bad is the front end gonna sag from this bumper? What could i do to fix it without getting a new suspension? I can't get a new suspension because of my warranty

Its not going to sag much. Stock springs are like 600-650lb/in

I'm not sure about the state you live in but you can do a leveling kit, They should not void out any warranty unless they the dealer can prove that the mod effected the original suspension.

So you are saying that replacing the coil springs or putting Bilstein 5100 shocks on the front will void your warranty? My understanding of a warranty affecting the suspension is if suspenion parts are changed that made it unsafe to drive or if the parts were put in wrong which resulted in an accident. I say if the bumper makes your front end sag replace the springs anyway with OME881s or similar. Talk to the seller to make sure whatever spring is used will correct your problem.
