Hey friends, looking for some feedback from the group. Yesterday, I did some significant modifications to my XK. It started with the 2.25" Rocky Road XK Lift, their nitrogen charged rear shocks, new OME XK front struts, and new 265/70R17 Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires on 2010 JK rims with 1.5" spacers. I then ended up changing out both front wheel hub bearings with SCITOO PN# 513234, and both outer tie rod ends with O’Reilly Auto Parts' MasterPro Chassis brand.
Everything came together fairly well with the help of air tools of course. After everything was back together there were two issues, one was the TPMS. Not sure if the JK's sensors are compatible but if they're not I know how to fix it and that's the smaller of the two issues. The second issue, is that every time I press on the brakes, the ABS kicks in, like it thinks a front tire is slipping
. There are no warning lights on the dash, the cruise control still works so I'm guessing the wheel speed sensors are working fine. This happens if I have the traction control on or off, no difference.
At first I thought maybe it was just out of alignment and that was causing the issue, so I immediately drove to the shop and had them align it but that made no change. Is it possible that simply adding the larger tires is causing this? I'm just afraid that maybe there's an issue with the wheel speed sensors but I would think if there was any issue, ABS would disable itself, the cruise control wouldn't work, etc. I have a 3874 Flashpaq coming tomorrow so I can modify the tire size, but I was just looking for advice as well, in case that doesn't change anything!
I hope it goes without saying, but I did search the forum and didn't really see anyone else with this same issue, it seemed to be more with the traction control system when adding lifts over 2.5" and the ESP causing issues with turning (link here: https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums...cting-esp.html
). My issue is, that above 5mph, ABS engages 95% of the time I apply any amount of pressure to the brake pedal, no matter what position the steering wheel is at. Thanks all, I really value this forum and any feedback you may have!
