I changed my axle bearings and seals, I carefully removed the wheel sensors while doing so. Now the speedometer needle bounces slightly and once I hit 35-40 mph the abs slip light and vdc lights come on. So since its speed related and not just abs, I'm trying to narrow it down to one side if I can.

The best thing to do would be to get the stored code retrieved using a scan tool.

There isn't a code stored, I checked that already.

You replace the whole assembly, or just press on new ones?

I carefully did my wheel sensors when I did my regear, and they havent given me any trouble. Maybe try cleaning them off?

Sounds like skipping (?), I don't know the word. Gaps in data collection, could just be dirty ya. I wish I could tell you a side though so you didn't have to look at both.

So today's report is I haven't had the time to take it apart and clean it so I just drove it and it's alternating between the light staying off now and when I hit the brakes at certain places the ABS will kick in for a moment and other times to like us back on in the ABS doesn't work so it must be dirty. The fact that the light will stay will for a little while means that the sensor is reading something if it was broken the light would stay on and I wouldn't read anything. So I guess I'll have to agree with it must be something dirty and maybe parts of it are flinging off even though I wiped it all down,paying attention to the sensors and the plate that gives the speed when I changed the bearings.

Was it a scan tool capable of reading Nissan ABS codes? A generic OBD II code reader won't read these types of codes. If the warning lights are flashing for the ABS system, there should be codes stored.

No it was just a scan tool. It appears to be correcting itself as I drive so I will go a little longer before opening it up again to clean.

For anyone interested the truck is fine now, I removed the sensors to clean and noticed the the magnet in one side picked up three chips of rust and some other iron particles which would be from me brushing off the backing plate.
So including paying $150 for a 20 ton shop press and $300 for parts (including new parking brake shoes) I'm at less than the dealer doing one side (I did both sides) and I get a new tool to keep.
