    Did you disconnect the ABS sensor wires during the install? Might want to check the connectors/ wires for damage. These could have been over stressed if the spindle and lower a-arm hung at full droop during install without something to keep the tension off the wires.

    thanks guys.. they did hang at full droop and nothing was keeping the tension off the wires.. Ill take a closer look at the connections tomorrow.. btw, the truck looks soo much better and rides awesome with the eibach coils and 5100s..

    take the wire lose from the inside of the inner fender and from the spindle and pin out the wires (use a multi meter in the diode position and one lead to each end of the contact and listen for the beep) . If you let the suspension pull on the wires they are probably broken inside. The other way is to look for any skinny spots in the wire indicating a break. I hit something in the road and it wrapped around the drive shaft and must have caught my right abs sensor wire. there was an internal break requiring me to strip the wire and solder and heat shrink it back together...

    yeah the wire inside is probably broken... next time you need to pull the suspension apart take the wire lose from inside the inner fender and there is one mount on the frame it is zip tied to.

    Mine did that too, once I first put the lift on my 09. The previous years don't have the traction control. Once I got it aligned both lights went off. The ABS and Traction control light. That's probably all it is. Go get it aligned I bet that will do it buddy.

    Ill put up some pics tonight after work.. I set them at zero for now and looks to have gotten about 1.6" like the say the would with just the coils.. Once i get some new sneakers, I may set the billys at .85 and do an AAL to the rear..

    I will also take a peek at the wires.. I put alot of pressure on them and as you guys were say they probably broke internally.. thanks everyone for the help

    took a quick pic of my truck.. It has the rear TSB done and had a wicked rake after I got that done.. Looks way better now I think.. I have the billys set at 0"
