How do you know that for fact?

The tech pubs state a recalibration should be accomplished whenever the front end is aligned or the sensor is replaced.

Just correcting the Taco lean should have it recal'd.

Not bagging on you, just suspect it is more common not to recal which seems odd since it is a performance and safety item.

When they did my alignment it was included. Their paperwork called it ESC but I assume it's the VSC. Their alignment computer tells them whether it's required or not. Guess it depends on how big of a change they make.

I still have the same lean... don't care for the level look. The vsc comes on when needed just like it did before the lift... no difference.

I haven't had mine recalibrated. it might go off randomly once a month, not a big deal.

Put on a 3" lift and didn't reset VSC.

What happens if it isn't recalibrated? Does it just turn off or does it affect handling?

its more susceptible to go off when it shouldn't. if i'm driving on a windy road or pulling into a shopping center driveway that's a little off camber it'll kick in. most daily driving situations, not recalibrating it shouldn't be a huge deal. and when not on pavement, the good ole abs kill switch turns all that nonsense off to keep it from interfering with the drive
