    Just put new 275/65-18's on 18x9 wheels, along w/ 3" lift. Looks & drives great BUT.... during certain turning situations, at travelling speeds, and when road surfaces are random, especially any loose gravel or wet spots, the front brakes, on side or the other, will grab or pulsate as if the anti-lock is kicking in, causing a hard pull to one side or the other. Scary if not expecting it. All was good on the highways and typical road situations, only noticed when crossing the windy roads in the VA mountains. HELP!

    Probably VSC kicking in. Some Tacomas after lift have problems with the VSC system. It needs to be recalibrated. See your dealer about that.

    Thanks all! VSC seems to be the concensus on the issue. Will update with results of the re-cal.

    I agree with all the others, Just for the heck of it you can turn VSC off and see if your issue is gone.
