    Today, I just installed my Bilstein 5100 struts on the front of my truck. I am now having an odd issue.

    All of my lights on the dash are blinking (ABS, Traction Control Light, VSC off, 4HI ).

    I tried to be careful to not tear the ABS lines, but it seems I was not careful enough.

    How do I track down the defective sensor/ABS line/ETC...

    Also, is it possible that something else could be wrong that is causing this, perhaps the computer is getting strange reading from the ABS system after the lift.

    Has anyone had this problem?

    Possible a Zero Point re-calibration might be required??

    I looked around for loose wires and connectors. I found a few that might have been loose,so I just pushed them in.

    I then disconnected the battery for a few minutes.

    Anyway I started the truck back up and it still had the ABS light on yellow. It went off shortly after driving away and has not come back on yet.

    So I think I dodged the bullet.

    Now I just have to get an alignment done as the tires on both sides are towed in quite badly.

    I also twisted the bump stop bolt thread off on the driver side. I cannot drill it out because of the bad angle. So I will just have someone weld it on.

    I am good to go, Thanks for the advice gentleman.

    Did you see any sag in the front end with the weight of that bumper?

    When I installed it, I saw around 1/2 inch of sag. I have had it on now for around 40k miles with seemingly no residual issues (Ball joint wear, tie rod wear, power steering struggling, etc).
