Warranty Question

Getting a sort of clunking sound toward the rear of my car, when I go over a bumb or make a sharp turn, (particluary if turning uphill). I suspect it is some suspension issue. I have had Pfadt swaybars installed. Is it even worth going to the dealer or will just tell me it's not covered because of the swaybars? Sort of a stupid question I guess but just want to save myself a trip to the dealer if he's not going to fix it under warranty.
Car's a 2011, still inder bumper to bumper.

Shouldn't matter. But it sometimes depends on the dealer.

If it was me, I'd swap the OEM sway bars back in and (assuming the noise remains) take it to the dealer for no-hassle warranty repair.

I upgraded my sways and endlinks and now my rear suspension "clunks" every time I go over an incline at an angle.

Moved to the proper sub-forum.

I wouldn't hesitate to take it in. If it's something not associated w/ the sways they should fix it.
