Rear ABS question

Before you jump my stuff...I've done my searches, and didn't find a suitable answer. I've got a 92 f-150 and need to replace the rear axle. Can I use a 9" to replace the 8.8 w/ ABS? If not, why?
Thanks

Re: Rear ABS question

Chances are the rear ABS on that truck isnt working right anyway so Id say go ahead.

HUH?
I don't see the logic. It might be what I want to hear, but it doesn't really answer the question. I'm running on the assumption that it is working properly, regardless of the other problems with the truck.
What kind of affects will I run into if I bypass this rear sensor setup?
How will it affect the rest of the braking system?
Or is an annoying little light on the dash all I'll have to worry about?

Re: Rear ABS question

This is for those of you who are considering the same swap. The 91 and newer f-150s and broncos (I don't know about the 250 and 350) Have a variable speed sensor (VSS) in the 8.8. This is tied into the computer and all sorts of fun crap. The truck won't work unless you relocate the VSS. So.. the 9" is not a straight swap for an 8.8. And it will affect more than just your ABS.
http://fullsizebronco.com/ is a good source for this info.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Rear ABS question

So how about just swapping in another 8.8?

Re: Rear ABS question

Sorry I didn't post sooner. Yeah you need that stupid sensor. Guys have fabb'd them up different ways. If you want to upgrade then go to the 10.25 one ton axle which has the ring and sensor you need for it to work.
