    2002 Ford Sport Trac brake pulsations

    I have an '02 Sport Trac that I purchased used not long ago. I have noticed when I make a normal stop, my brake pedal starts to pulsate at speeds <5-10 mph (akin to the ABS activating). It has nothing to do with road surface type. I have no ABS warning lights illuminated. I have heard...

    Pulsing brakes due to ABS

    I recently just changed my lower ball joints on my 97 4WD Ford Explorer and now when I come to a stop my brakes pulse which I think is because of my ABS. I would rather not just pull the relays, I would rather fix the problem. Could have something on got on the front sensors to cause this...
