    That sounds like your ABS is kicking in. With a lift comes bigger tires and that can screw up the ABS sensors if not adjusted properly for the new size of tires, especially if you go alot bigger then the stock size. Can you give us more info....amount of lift, size of tires/wheels.

    I agree. Don't think you'll get that sound from ABS. Have you upgraded your brakes since the tire change? You probably lost some stopping power.
