It will not void your warranty. If any modification is the cause of a problem the mftr can deny a warranty claim on that part. Tens of thousands f150s tuned and we have yet to have anyone with an issue.

I'm not sure who the we is. @Toddman34 is correct, and you will be in for a surprise sir. Take a tuned truck in with any type engine issue, and it won't take long for the warranty work to be denied by the dealer.

Well, so much for leveling. I looked up ride quality with leveling kits. Apparently their is a big problem with 2011 trucks and the electronic steering. Lot of unhappy people with a lot of clunking going on. Doesn't matter if you disconnect the battery or not.

Not doing that to my truck. People replacing steering racks, put the blocks back on (not very smart) and break another rack lol. Read about one guy who went through 3 racks!!

Taking my leveling kit back.

The deal for your truck was fine but 5K for your trade in!?!? You could have sold that truck for double privately...
Taken the spacers back and get either full struts like Rok said or if your budget minded the bilstein 5100s are about the same price as a spacer kit but a little more expensive to install. They will give you the lift with out any knocking and improve your ride quality.

the backup camera that i ordered is the Accele RVCLPMB, it was 80 bucks and seems super solid. mounts right on top of the license plate, the main reason i ordered this one is because my carpentry/wood shop teacher has the same one on him gmc, lol

i have to agree with him. only 5k for the 05? i private party sold my o5screw for$3500 and it had 272k miles on it. i really doubt u were anywhere close to the mileage.
