ABS would activate when not needed at low speeds, then quite working and dash light would come on. Replaced speed sensor and it solved the problem.

Both front wheel speed sensors register as bad when scanned. i guess it's good(?) to know this is likely 2 bad sensors.

Brakes get hard and growl a slow speed.

ABS braking was working whenever it felt like it. Lights on and check engine came on. Failed and the ABS code came up. Replaced brake pads, calipers, rotors and the speed control sensor. They now are worse and can not drive the truck. When pressing the brake, the truck pulls so hard to either left or right(it chooses)and shakes violently, with brakes not stopping truck at all. What else can be the problem? Need input and suggestions please.

Feels like a beach ball under brake pedal. Happens more when it's cold. Retards breaking and have to pump pedal to help resolve issue.

ABS light came on after bounding through a snow bank. Told I'd need to replace ABS on front left...expensive and haven't done repair yet.
