I don't have the facilities to do it so I have to have it done. No level area...
A friend can do the axle quickly versus fussing with the ring (his request). Well worth a case of beer to let him slap the axle in. Just need to where to buy and what brand.
Matt, my friend didn't find any codes until he selected the ABS specific screen on his Snap-On reader. Granted, it was a $20,000 unit...
It came back with "No input detected" from the sensor, thats when we saw the crack.
Thanks to this forum. GF's 2008 Escape 48,000 miles, had a ABS light on most of the time and a rattle in the front suspension.
I check the tone rings and sue enough the right front was cracked. Called NAPA, they had one there in under an hour. $55.00 for a re-man unit.
I put it in after watching a video on it. Not like I haven't done one before but nice to know what I was in for. The axle is much easier to replace then on the Honda's and Acura's my son and I have had over the years. Those two bolts on the bottom of the strut and the ABS bracket are easier then beating the lower ball joint on Civic's.
