    Hey guys,

    I have an '09 Tacoma, looking into a 3" lift and 32" or 33" tires. Just curious about any issues with ATRAC/ABS systems with a lift? I previously had a '04 Tacoma with 6" fabtech and 35's. The ABS didn't work because the wheel speed sensor was off. I heard of ways to fix it, but never bothered.

    Thanks for any help!

    Got my VSC fixed with an alignment and VSC re-cal. Works great but all the VSC re-cal does is zero out the steering inclination sensor after the alignment. see my post: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/suspension/41215-lift-vsc-answer-5.html#post4178113

    However, I noticed the last couple days in the weather we are having here and the way I drive....My ABS shoulda kicked in at some time over the last week and it hasnt. So today...wet, icy-ish roads...I mashed the brakes hard several times....nothing but skid! So ....damnit! That means the computer needs to be reflashed for the bigger tires. SUX!!!!!! Then again Im not a fan of ABS either. Hope that answers your question.

    I believe the VSC recalibration also zeros the yaw sensor
