Question Truck leveling kits?

what are people doing to the new Silverados and others to "level" them out?

I just seen a red crew cab in town that had to be 2011 or 2012 and it was all leveled out and look awesome but it looked like the front was raised instead of the back lowered.

Is the warranty void by doing this?

I cant stand the way my trucks ass end is higher than the front..........Im almost thinking using drop shackles to drop it 2 " in the rear but I do NOT want to void the warranty or mess up the "ride"

Any suggestions? Or just deal with it til the warranty runs out?

I guess I could put some sand bags in the back over the axle

The added weight (over the axles) with also provide a little better weight distribution, for Icey roads.

It doesn't void the warranty.
