They are about 50 off ebay, otherwise the dealer wants 400. So anything between is fair game.

And yes you have to buy the whole deal, its an assembly that you cannot service. Easy way to tell if you have 4wabs is to see if you have two lines coming off the wheel hub. One is vacuum and one is the abs wire.

You will also need a 25 dollar plastic snap ring, they don't like to come out in one piece and ford says they need to be new.

These wheel bearings are unserviceable.


OP

The rear speed sensor tends to die, for the 20 bucks and computer reset its worth a shot. Otherwise ABS codes are dealer only and a min diagnostic fee these days is 100 bucks.
