    Default Solid Axle Swap

    Anyone on here that could help me disable my ABS. I am swapping in three quarter ton solid axles front and rear and am not going to have Wheel sensors anymore...
    Help??

    I believe that just unplugging your sensors will disable the ABS.

    Anyone else..?.. taking out the ABS system fuse..?..

    Took the fuse out due to bad contacts making the pedal spaz out last ten feet before stopping. Removing the fuse stopped to pedal gitters but now ABS & Brake light dummy ligts on dash stay on. But breaks work just fine.

    I unplugged everything from the abs module under the hood. Solved my problem and I don't have an abs light on.

    There should be a connector wire... Or a fuse that you disconnect to disable your ABS. I can't recall exactly where or what it was, all i can remember when we did it for ****s and giggles on my buddy's truck is that it was very simple.

    Im going with a 14 bolt in the rear, and a 60 in the front. Old Axles, divorce mount NP205 T case. Sound good...

    Been doing some searching.. Found the 2500 silverado and sierras with solid axle swaps.. They all use four links and fancy coilover shocks and such. Im more of a keep it simple guy, leafs are the way to go for me. I also noticed that Dodge made (makes) trucks with solid axles and wheel speed sensors, perhaps i could use one of these axles and keep my abs functional.. I am against having lights on on the dash.. so that isnt an option..
    Feedback??
