Antilock brake problem

While towing my trailer my front right tire will lock up if I have to do a an emergency type stop. This has happened twice now, leaving me with flat spots on tires. The trailer is heavy and is dropping the back end a bit. I am going to put another leaf spring in but was wondering if someone had an idea about this. The antilock brake light doesn't come on. I have a 2000 long bed, automatic with trailer brakes.

You may just need a new sensor. Make sure the connections are clean and clear too. It should be easy to find right near the front leaf spring. Also IIRC you may not be able to just replace the sensor, I think its built into the hub. Someone will speak up here shortly to help ya out.

I hate to ask this but is your truck 4 wheel abs? All are rear wheel but not all, mine included has front ABS.

You should have a sensor on top of the unit bearings on the front, that has a cable coming out. If no wiring is present, then more than likely you dont have 4 wheel ABS. Being a 2000 it had to be ordered with 4 wheel ABS, it was not standard until 2002 or 3 IIRC, this VIN decoder might help as well, I cant remember if its in the VIN or not though. https://www.ford-trucks.com/vin-decoder/index.php
