With most extended warranty policies, any aftermarket mod not recommended by the manufacturer will cause your warranty to be voided. So if you do want that lift kit, you’re better off canceling your warranty so you don’t end up paying for it only to find out that you won’t get coverage. Some contracts can be more forgiving.

The warranty will cover everything that's stock on the car so it won't cover aftermarket parts. Hell. you can even soft tune the car (with a add-on to the ECU) and just take it out before the service (depends on the dealership, some let you and some won't) and it won't void the warranty.

Well first of all, at least if you're in the US, it definitely wouldn't void your ENTIRE warranty.

Many consumers mistakenly believe that they must use manufacturer-approved parts so as not to void their warranty. The manufacturers might want you to believe this but nothing is further from the truth. Aftermarket replacement parts will not void your new car’s warranty.
Manufacturers will automatically void your AC warranty if they know that any single component within your system was replaced with an “off-brand” part. So what does “off-brand” mean? Well, it means any part that was made by a company other than the original manufacturer (i.e. Trane, Carrier, etc).
The FTC says that the manufacturer or dealer must PROVE that the aftermarket or recycled part caused the need for repairs before denying any warranty coverage. In addition to the protection provided under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, SEMA is also working to defend your right to modify your ride.
Many VW dealers, for instance, are famous for voiding warranty when the car was (in their opinion) used for competition (racing). Guys put intakes and exhausts on then go in with a blown tranny and find warranty voided. It was the performance mods made them look closer for evidence of racing.
