This is from a previous post I replied to:

Superlift has a calibration device. This was taken directly from their website:

SUPERLIFT ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF THE REVOLUTIONARY TRUSPEED SPEED SIGNAL CALIBRATOR

A speed sensor calibrator has finally arrived that addresses the needs of any computer-controlled vehicle running larger (or smaller) diameter tires: The Superlift TruSpeed speed sensor calibrator. The TruSpeed works with any electronic speedometer and hooks up in line with the speed sensor located on the transmission or transfer case of the vehicle. The TruSpeed alters the speed signal at its source, so speedometer reading, ABS function, and transmission shift points are all corrected to work with any non-stock tire diameter. A simple four-wire hookup is all it takes to install the TruSpeed, and comprehensive installation instructions make calibration an easy one-man operation. It not only corrects the speedometer reading to within 1 percent, it can be recalibrated an infinite number of times if future gear ratio and / or tire changes are made to the vehicle. In addition, the TruSpeed can be programmed for two different height settings for those who make seasonal tire changes or those who frequently run two different-height sets of tires on the vehicle (i.e. "street" and "show" tires). The TruSpeed will soon be available for all domestic and import cars, trucks, and vans equipped with an electronic speedometer. For more information, contact your nearest Superlift dealer or call the company's sales / tech line at 800/551-495

If you wanted to, couldnt you get the superlift sensor and plug in 44" tires and 3.55 gears, your speedo would read 20 when you were really going 60 or so but then again, your mileage would stay low. Does it effect shift points or anything else important?

no cause the speed isnt affected by your gear ratio just the diameter of the tire. there is a tone ring on the carrier.
