Answers :

It sounds as though you are expierencing flase abs activation. this is common on gm (and ford) trucks. this is caused by rust getting underneath the front wheel speed sensors, betwen the sensor and hub mounting surface. the rust opushes the sensor away from the tone ring making it lose sight of it, forcing the abs to engage as it suspect the wheel is locked up @ 0 mph. the vehicle may have a tendancy to have a very slight pull to the opposite side that is affected. meaning if i break @ a slow speed, hands off wheel (be careful :) ) it may pull to the left @ first slightly, this would indicate the right front sensor has lost its signal...if you do not have a pull..you can start by carefuly removing the front sensors, cleaning the rust off the mounting surface, then reinstalling with somedielectric greese on the sensor oring and mounting surface...be carefule pulling sensor out of hub as it is plastic and may break, try turning left to right veryslightly, working back and forth and it will come out..if it break, you will have to pick out the pieces, not dropping any pieces into the hub asm, if this happens, the hub is junk and very expensive to replace...be careful, good luck
