i tried searching every word combo, no luck

i'm aware of what cranked t-bars do as far as making the ride stiffer and affecting the rebound action. but if i chose to crank my torsion bars, would it affect my warranty?

also, that moss act about warranty's, does canada have something like that?
any canadians or knowledgable americans know the answer?

thanks.

The dealer wouldnt even know if they were cranked, and if you ever get a question about them from the dealer just act dumb and act like you dont know what they are talking about.

so if i did this to the front, just to level it out, the dealer wouldn't know. what if i also added shackles to the rear? i kinda like the raked look and if i did smething to the front, i'd wanna even it out. you know, make the front look in proportion to the rear.

i'm guessing i can get chevy shackles at the dealer? does anyone know the cost?
