your brakes are into the rotors from your description. has nothing to do with abs. get them checked asap. the longer you drive the more damage you do to the system.

the sound is intermitent but regular, i believe it is from the abs trying to engage, the grinding is not from pressing on brake. I know the abs sensor needs to be replaced, does this hinder the trucks safety/reliability?
