I have an 02 Ranger XLT w/FX4 package. 5-speed, 4.0
I have a slight issue with my brakes. During just normal driving, everything is ok.
If I'm going really slowly, they are ok as well - until I try to turn the wheel. Then it feels and sounds like the ABS is kicking in.
It's the absolute most annoying thing when I'm trying to pull into a parking spot.
I can pull into the parking spot ok but then the last 2 or 3 mph, it feels/sounds like the ABS.
No check engine light, no !Brake light.... nothing.
This started happening before, then it went away for ahile after I replaced the rear wheel cylinders. Now it's back.
Any suggestion? Thanks.
My Raner has been doing something similar for a while, but recently it's gotten worse. Turning the wheel all the way to the right and braking would normally cause the ABS to kick in. Recently, even going straight and coming to a stop would cause the ABS to kick in ever other time. But when I'm stopping in a straight line, I notice that the steering wheel would pull to the right if the ABS kicks in... which side should I have checked?

My '03 does it and it's annoying.

ABS kicking in at ~5 mph .
The problem stems from the distance between the front ABS sensors and the ring in the rotor assembly. Loose / worn wheel bearings are generally the culprit.
Has this been confirmed?
