How do I tell if my 97 Ranger is 2 or 4 wheel ABS?

Hey everybody,

I have a 1997 Ford Ranger Splash. 2wd, 5-speed, V6, 4.0L. It has 150,000 miles and it needs front brake pads and rotors.

I did the brakes myself 6 years ago and had the rotors turned, and I think that this time I am going to need to replace the rotors.

I bought a set of Wagner ThermoQuiet pads (Those are the same brakes that I put on 6 years ago), but when I was at Advance Auto Parts, they asked if my truck was 2 or 4 wheel ABS. That determines what kind of rotors I get.

How am I able to tell if my truck as 2 wheel or 4 wheel ABS?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

-Joe

I am pretty sure you don't have 4 abs yoy **** have RABS rear wheel anti lock brakes. I think the 4wd have ans sebsors built in to the bearings. You prob should get new wheel bearings ans seals if they are original. Make sure you use high temp grease

It should be the 2 wheel ABS setup. Be sure to take an old rotor with you to match up to the new ones you purchase. There are multiple offerings available. At least I found that to be the case with my 03. If there is ABS on the front the rotors will have a trigger ring on the rotor for the ABS sensor.

Raise the hood & look on the drivers side inner fender below the brake master cylinder, at the ABS moror.

If it has 4 lines coming out, two going foward to the front wheels & two going to the rear wheels, it's four wheel ABS. If it only has two lines going aft, it's two wheel ABS.
