try resetting the computer (unplugg the battery for 1/2 hour). Did you make sure the ABS sensor is tightened good enough on the new spindles?

thats all i can think of

yeah just make sure they are clipped in tight and reset the battery.

how much have you driven it since the lift BTW? did you go through any water puddles?

EDIT: **** im retarded, not reset the battery reset the pcm...

Also, did you route the cable in some way on the front sensors that would cause it to be stressed? In the back of course the wire plugs into the diff.

But the most likely thing is what everyone has been saying -- damage or mismounted front sensors.

Also, check fuse 14 in the cab.

i turn my car on and it doesnt come on....When i accelerate it turns on at about 10-15 mph....i think i disconnected the bracket that holds the sensor wires to the frame to give it extra length to stretch...does it have to be screwed into the frame secure? i scanned the diagnostics port and it says speed sensor LF, but why would it be only left?

make sure the wires running along the frame for the front left are not to tight or cut


i beleive if you need a new speed sensor it requires you to buy a new wheel hub assembly

if thats the case i would suggest a online ford parts place such as http://www.genuine-ford-parts.com/
i have had good transactions form them at a decent price
