    Hey guys new to tw and just got a tacoma 4x4. I recently purchased some used sway a way coilovers that need rebuilt. Anybody know of anyone that rebuilds them locally? I currently have them at orw in temecula for the past two weeks and they haven't done anything with them. I'm willing to take them from orw if there is a local shock rebuilder. Thanks, mike

    question for all you 2nd gen tacos with a 3inch lift.... i noticed that when i am turning on round-about ramps to get onto the freeway, my vsc tends to beep and sometimes it causes abs to kick in and lock my front breaks making it extremely scary when driving. ive read that some people brought there trucks in to the dealer to have the vsc re-calibrated but only a few taco members have had success with bringing it in. other members have said its a waste of money. so its 50/50. help please :)

    Yes you need to have the yaw recalibrated. Try places other than the dealer, because the hourly rate is stupid expensive.

    Thanks the reply lembowski. Are there any places you would recommend getting it re calibrated at in San Diego?

    If You're under warranty would that be covered?

    Well, that's not necessarily true about them hating lifts :D. But Yea, after thinking about it, they wouldn't cover it because they could very well prove that your lift caused the VSC to trip more than necessary...so yea...

    On another note...I bet Jason (Speed Freak) could fix that for you, or at least do something along the lines of that to help you (us maybe :D)

    Well, I haven't had the issue yet...but only had the lift on for a few hours :D. My only problem was apparently a couple lug nuts on my front tire were loose...had a bad clunking sound on my way home...got home found 3 nuts were on by a couple threads. ouch...that could have ended badly. Could have just been alignment off, not completely tightened and they loosened up quick, who knows. Alignment tomorrow, hopefully VSC stay's the F in its box :D
