Could be several different things. Have you pulled the wheel off and checked it out? Any damage to the wheel? Is there any grinding sound?

Two possibilities I can think for right off the bat would be wheels contacting the steering knuckle (don't most drop bracket lifts need 17-18 wheels because of this?), or brake rotor damage from the install.

Or frozen caliper maybe?

Blacktacoma23 ...this member has the same BDS lift...maybe he can give you some input. But I would lean towards that sensor line being damaged as a possible culprit.

also just to be safe, make sure "tone ring" inside hub (for reading abs sensor) is not or has not been damaged, will still affect abs if it is damaged. check all clearances -rim to rotor, rim to caliper- rim/tire to knuckle or ball joint etc. just be very careful n thorough. do it once, do it right, the first time.
