Yes! this makes perfect sense. I have the same 'problem' as once you lift the truck and especially when you change the tires/dimension of the wheel in relation to the stock conditions for the traction control module, it will complain at full wheel lock (e.g. u-turn).

I noticed it only happens when I do a U-turn quickly, if I take it slowly it does not happen. So I now take my time in a U-turn

I think the SL guys have to use an ESP recaliberation system to change to the traction control module as the severity gets higher with the more extreme lifts (don't quote me on this but this is my memory from the hundreds of threads read over the years ).

hope this helps

Same issue here. I've dealt with it for YEARS. U turns at sloooow speed if I'm careful won't do anything. But hit a curb on a turn and it's ESP city!!

I have calibrated my tires with superchips but it didn't do anything but change the speedo. I've also seen the module for the bigger lift kits that dumbs down the ESP system, more or less. But I only have the RC 2".

Turning off the ESP by pressing and holding the TC button rids the issue, but then I'm driving with no ESP, which defeats the purpose.

HEEEELLLLLPPPPP!!!!
