    Hello,
    Last weekend I installed a All pro LT kit on my 2011 tacoma. Once I had it aligned, I drove the windy road home. On my way the traction control was going off around sharp turns around 25mph. The truck was gripping fine and was definitely not being pushed hard at all. Also, on the highway, It was wandering in the turns pretty badly. I re checked the torque on wheel barring and lugs, as well as the steering shafts. All was well. Anybody have any experience with this after installing an LT kit?

    You need to do a zero point calibration for the VSC/ABS whenever you do anything at all to the suspension, steering, and alignment.
    Wandering is most likely due to alignment. What's your alignment spec sheet look like? You want as much caster as you can.

    Thanks for the reply!
    I made sure that the shop that did the alignment had a machine rather than a tape measure had job. They put it to factory specs, but since then i've learned that it may need a 3-4 degree caster? Does this sound correct? I had planned on having the alignment done again after the springs break in and I adjust the height accordingly. Hopefully with some help I can get the #s for the correct specs. After I have that dialed in, I'll have the VSC/ABS calibrated. (Thanks for the info on that!) Can any shop calibrate this or is it something I need to deal with at a dealer?

    Recalibrate is super easy and you should not wait. Requires the manual procedure and a couple of paperclips. The truck needs to be on flat ground with the wheels pointed straight ahead.
