abs kicks on at 5mph

i have an 01 xlt 4x4 step side and ever since i did some mudding down by a river my abs will kick on when im slowing down to a stop around 5mph. thought it was the drums in the back but i took the relay out and it stopped. thinking its a sensor anyone had this problem before and what did you do to fix it?

Clean the ABS sensor. You most likely have mud all up in that area.

You may have to pull the front rotors off and clean the sensors that look at the sensor ring on the back side. Look at the back side of the steering knuckle and you'll find a single wire running down to the sensor.Also check the front wheel bearings for ANY play.
Do a search in the Drivetrain section for front abs sensors.
