    I have a 2009 tacoma double cab 4x4 off-road package with a 3 inch Procomp coilover lift. The tires are 285 75 R16's. The issue I am having is with the front ABS initiating when cornering at moderate speeds. I am either on the throttle or coasting through the corner. Any suggestions on what is causing this and how to correct?

    I am learning more about the issue, and it may have to deal with the wheel spin sensor, not ABS. Has any body had issues with oversize tires and the wheel spin sensor?

    I don't have your lift but I am lifted about 3" with 285/75/16s and I have never experienced what your talking about. I take it that the ABS idiot light is lighting?

    same thing happens to my 09 DC 4x4 lifted 3" with fox C/O's. Only happens when I am cornering pretty fast, I will hear that fast beeping and the brakes will apply a little bit. Wish there was a way to make a switch to disable the ABS completely and turn it back on with the flick of a switch

    Sounds more like DSC than ABS... And if it is press and hold DCS button for 3 seconds. I personally have grown to love this in my cars. I have one car (M3) that I have turned it off on many occasions. Now I don't. I find I like not spinning all over the road when I don't want to!

    Yes, the idiot light and buzzer come on. I heard that the computer might need to be recalibrated to accomidate the larger tires. Something to do with the wheel spin sensors?

    The procomp springs are stiff. Do you think there is a connection to the reduce suspension travel, body roll and the ABS sensor?

    Well, DSC and ABS systems have built in parameters of the different speeds each wheel has relative to the overall vehicle speed. - Every wheel travels at different speeds unless you are traveling on a pool table flat road and are driving EXACTLY straight. If the wheels are traveling outside of these parameters it will attempt to slow the wheel(s) that are spining faster than the theoretical envelope that they 'should be' rotating at. I'd say, stop traveling 90 around those hairpin turns! ;)

    I wish it was 90. It is more like 30-35! Thanks for the reply

    I hear you... Regardless I would think that the ratios in the envelope of wheel speeds should be relatively close. Are you accelerating when this happens? I get that when I punch my M3 into turns.

    I get it both under throttle and coasting into a corner.

    If you're not braking then its VSC and not ABS

    There is a mod somewhere to add a VSC disable switch

    You are correct. I am not applying the brakes, so it most likely the VSC. Thanks for the feedback.
