problem after lowering

I lowered my truck 2 inches front/rear over the weekend. Everything worked out great, used lowering springs up front and shackle flip for rear. Now my ABS light is on. Has anyone else experienced this?
Better yet, what do I need to check. Brakes work fine.
I'll check fuses and brake fluid when I get home tonight.
Thank you in advance

Check out your ABS sensors in your front spindle and your rear pumpkin. Take 'em out, clean 'em. Could be possible you may have damaged one when taking out the stock coils.

I guess I should ask for truck specs....year, model, drivetrain, etc. 2001+ are all 4whel ABS.
