    so i posted awhile back about the issues with my truck after the bigger wheels and 3" lift. and got some good info from a few guys. But after doing the zero point cal. and the spacers on the sensor im still have the same issue, but it seems to be a little less than previously mentioned. I've also heard that it could be the UCAs that need to be upgraded. just wondering if anyone has had the VSC/nannies issues continue after doin those 2 steps and then installed the new UCAs and that fixed the problem?? also thanks 2 @csuviper @Sean266 4 helping me out.

    Have you checked to see if it's still rubbing? IMO, the UCA's will prevent this...I added some Light Racing UCA's to my Tundra and I dont have this issue...on my last one, I did as I had stock UCA's and there was some rubbing on those tight on-ramp turns.

    you could always pay $100 to the dealer to have them calibrate it as well.

    When all else fails, that's what I did. The dealer may not even charge that much. I was in for the VSC issue and for a broken speed sensor wire which I broke. Even though the VSC issue by itself was not covered on my warranty ,they did the re-cal as a freebie along with the new speed sensor (which wasn't broken by the way) and speed sensor harness which were covered. Re-cal wasn't listed on work order. Good people.

    Some guys have reported $50 and as low as $30 at the dealer. I know my service adviser said 1 hr minimum labor charge. $100. (for 5 minutes work)

    I paid $110 on my last Tundra...and that still didnt fix it 100% but seemed to help with the shifting a bit.
