I put the Bulletproof Suspension 12 inch lift on and now when I go around corners fast the slip light blinks and I lose power. Is anyone else having this problem? Can you turn this off?

Your TCS is kicking in for some reason. You sure both of the rear sensor's connections are good and tight?

Edit to add: No, you can't turn off the TCS. I really, really wish we could, but we can't. I hate it.

Yeah I checked all the connections. I was getting some vibrations from the rear driveline, so I'm getting a new longer one built now. Do you think that would have anything to do with that kicking on? Or is it just because it is so high and leans more?

my lights were coming on around turns too after installing my RAS. turns out my sensor connections were stretched too tight. re-routed them to allow some slack and the problem was solved.

And this is a good idea for the OP to check. In turns, it might be really stretching the one on the inside of the turn a bit too much.

It's not just because it's higher and leans more. For some reason, the two sensors in the rear are showing a difference in wheel speed. The ECU interprets this as wheel spin and kicks in your TCS, which then radically kills power.

Get you a truetrac.
Which will fix the TCS thing once he gets this sensor issue sorted. :) The TCS won't pick up a speed difference if BOTH tires are spinning. :lol:

I'll check those wires again. They are just floppin around back there. Maybe they're pulling just enough when I turn to cause problems. What is a truetrac? How much do they run? I want to be able to rail corners again!

With a 12" lift, your days of "railing corners" are gone, my friend.

True Trac is a LSD type diff for the rear.

Find your bug in the sensors and the TCS will quit coming on, unless you really do start to spin one or the other of the rears.
