1996 Ranger ABS

I have a 1996 Ranger XLT with the 2.3 I4, 2wd, 5 spd.

How do I know if I have 2 wheel ABS or 4 wheel ABS? If it's 2 wheel ABS how do I know if it is front or back?

Thanks

go out and turn one of your tires all the way one direction and look at the back of the rotor is there is a gear looking thing on the back side you have abs in the front. i know you have abs in the rear.


that wont work because of the dust shield. go into some wet grass or gravel and hit the breaks hard you will feel it in your foot with you have abs and you will hear it

Or how about you just look to see if you have wires going to each front spindle since the rotors could have the tone rings anyway. You could also just open the hood and look at the abs pump and see if its labeled front and rear or just rear.

I am not familiar with the abs pump. Where is this located / what does it look like?

Just go look at the front spindles like Christian said. If there is wires going to them then you should have 4 wheel ABS.
