New to the forum, been reading a lot of threads. I recently bought a certified preowned 2018 Yukon Denali for my wife. I put a RC level on it, rear Daystar spacer and ditched the 22’s for 18’s and 275 KO2’s.

I suspect the shocks are bad because the ride is pretty rough, like driving my 3/4 ton truck. When putting the lift on I noticed a little leaking from the rear air shocks too.

Is the dealer going to void my warranty because it’s leveled??

Did you address the sensor rods when you did the level?

Also, I highly doubt the dealer would replace any suspension component under warranty with your current situation.

I adjusted the fronts by marking them with a sharpie before and then making a bracket to make it sit at the stock location again. Rear from what I’ve read just won’t self level until it sees more suspension sag.

It road bad before I did any of this. I thought a lot of the rough ride was coming from the low profile 22s

they might try to not pay for the repair, i would try to ask first, before you bring it in. otherwise, i'd put the truck back to stock, have the shocks replaced under warranty and then re install. if shocks are leaking then its prob the reason the ride is rough.

There was a service bulletin that told the dealers to look for leveling kits if customer reported harsh ride. Is your magnaride covered under your warranty?

you cant half-ass a lift and expect everything to work right, do it right or throw the oem crap away and put some good shocks and springs on it.

I think it’s covered. It’s a bumper to bumper warranty from being a certified preowned.

Am I wasting my time? Should I just delete the magnaride and buy some shocks?
