    i have a 2011 taco double cab that i just bought from the dealership with a p.o.s. pro comp spacer lift on it. when i drive on any country road with off camber turns, the auto limited slip/ vsc system engages with the abs surging and cutting power to the engine. dsi(lift company, 4 wheel parts, whom own pro comp) says the ya sensor is too sensitive. they are giving me the option to put a six inch full suspension lift on for free. they seem to thinkthis will fix the problem.... any suggestions out there?

    its been to the dealer numerous times, they pass it onto 4 wheel parts because they put the lift on. they have recalibrated the computer for the new stance of the truck and it still engages. good thing is that i do have a full warranty for the truck. it just sucks buying a 30k $ vehicle and the dealership has literalley put more miles on the truck than i have. any input on fabtech coilovers?

    the dealer is doing it. i watched them today. unfortinitely toyota deals with d.s.i. which owns 4 wheel parts. im pretty much stuck with what i got.

    Since you have already had the VSC recalibrated, one solution is to drive slower around those turns, and the VSC will no longer engage. :anonymous:

    Another possible option is to disable VSC each time you start your truck and before you drive on those back country roads. See your owners manual for how to do this.
