Installed Pro-Comp 3" lift with ABS issues

I have a 2011 Toyota Tacoma Sport that I installed the Pro-Comp Colis on my Bilstein 5100 struts to allow for the 285 70-17 Nitto Terra Grappler AT's. My question is when I am taking a curve to the right at about 40 mph my ABS is engaging but once I let off gas and straighten up it goes away. Any ideas? I bought the Pro-Comp 3" suspension lift with shocks but since the bilstein struts were same length I used the bilsteins instead of the explorer struts and shocks it came with.

You probably need to get the ECU reflashed for the larger tires. The VSC system is set up for stock sized tires, when you take a corner with larger tires, the wheel speeds relative to each other are different with larger tires and the ECU thinks you're out of control. Get the reflash and that should solve your problem.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

It's not ABS , it's the skid control ECU that controls VSC

I have that lift and had the same problem. You need to get the dealer to do a zero point calibration. And you will probably want to have the alignment perfect before doing this. Fixed the issue for me.
