Default Abs or Tcs Issues with Lift

Ok so i have my 2011 Ram 1500 with 6" Zone lift and 37" tires, one thing that i am noticing is that when going around a corner, i can hear the abs or somthing kicking in and i can also feel it in the pedal, is this because my speedometer is off?

Will the Hypertech speedo Calibrator fix this issue?

I called hypertech and he said it was because my steering wheel isnt exactly straight when they aligned it, i feel that it is straight but he said even if its off one degree it throws the whole system off, Any input here would be greatly apprectiated

Thanks

Any updates!?!?

Also do you disable your TC when driving? As soon as I crank my truck I disable TC and turn on the tow/haul.

I asked my dealer about this. My abs comes on sometimes going around a turn too. They said it is because of the tire size. The computer thinks it has 33" tires so there for when turning it thinks your spinning and it is trying to stop it from spinning. So get a programmer and set the tire size. problem solved. I will be getting mine soon .

I had a similar problem with my 07 Wrangler, it would drive me insane. Only happened sporadically and the Superchips programmer didn't completely cure it.

i got the speedo calibrator and it fixed alot of it, but i still have 4wd issues, like the front end isn't always locked when its in 4 lock or 4 low and it makes some crazzzzy noises haha, i got soo fed up i jacked all 4 tires off the ground and took a video of putting some brake resistance against and made it do it, so i can take these videos to the dealer and say FIX it or give me a new truck, because this is such a pain in the a when im off road and up to my fenders in mud

Check out the videos and see what u guys think it is
