    Whatsup everyone! It's been awhile since I've been on here but I just have a quick question.. Does having a leveling kit voids the factory warranty? It shouldn't, seeing as how I'm not modifying the engine or anything performance wise, but I'm just curious.. Thanks you guys!

    No it won't. Are you thinking of a top place spacer that bolts on? What kind of lift are you looking at?

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    It voids warranty on the suspension, methinks.

    ^There is no such thing as "voiding a warranty".

    I was wondering why nobody posted this today. I was having withdrawal.

    That is untrue, If his tailight stops working he won't be able to get it replaced after a spacer:rolleyes:

    from what i heard it doesnt void it aslong a place like 4wheel parts or a store like it does it because they sell brand new tacomas with lifts on them at the dealer and it doesent void it.

    i have a leveling kit on mine and have taken it to the dealer to get a couple radios replaced and a peice on my stearing wheel replaced they havent gave me any grief.

    it only voids the warranty if the lift itself caused the problem or issue to happen i have asked the dealers around my area that and that's what they told me so if you tail light stops workin it wasn't caused by the spacer lift so it would be under warranty
