Ashamed to say I don't recall (if I ever did know) but can the ABS sensor be replaced on the vehicle without removing the hub + rotor?

... now I'm recalling, the answer is no, because the sensor is concentric with the hub, yeah?

wow, I'm batting 1,000.

It depends on the year truck you have because the early 04-08 year had the incorporated sensor and the later 09-12 year had a separate pick-up sensor.

Now that I did not understand about the later assemblies..

And timely with something on a different vehicle going on also,

Even that alone is reason to upgrade during rebuild to use the later brakes.
.. with a rear disc conversion I'd be just as happy to run a pre-'09 rotor up front for less unsprung weight.

The smaller rotors feel great on a '05 crew with TSMMC rear disc conversion.
On a std-cab I would expect even better..
Rears being independently suspended they should be outstanding.

-- Being able to replace the (front) sensor is another matter altogether, plenty reason to go '09+.

The 09-12 have replaceable pickups :cry:

So much work on the early models... :lmao:
Yes, you have to remove the hub to do the job! @Rick_crew
