    Ok, 2001 T4R Sport with 3" lift.
    Just did the lift recently & ever since then my brakes have been acting up triggering the ABS at around 8-10mph. I bleed the lines and the first time i stop it's ok. The 2nd time, it starts acting up again. Then I bleed the brakes again and there is air in them again. I can't find any visible leaks anywhere & I'm not sure why its doing this .... Any ideas ???

    Have you replaced the lines? When you say triggering ABS, do you mean when you break at 8-10mph, the ABS starts, or the lights are coming on?

    The ABS starts. I did not change any brake lines. I didn't even let the caliper hang on anything when I pulled it & the bracket. I tied them up so there wasn't any pressure on the lines.

    I'd check your lines first, then.
