Got a feeling it was only on the 4x4

^^ as above the late model 2wd versions could have ABS

I might have a few pics of the internals somewhere....

[edit]

The ABS ring is actually on the edge of the washer - the sensor is relatively big compared to modern ones (~10mm dia from memory)
The washer and stub axles have splines to lock them together (same hub/spline as non-ABS ones, but different washer and upright)

^^ in those pics you'll see the alloy blanking plugs I made to replace the sensors

those hubs came from a 1990 2.0 DOHC ghia estate - but any late model hi-spec 2wd car should do (except the cossie)


The rest of the upright is identical to the normal one and uses the same bearings - so would be a strait swap for a non-ABS one

as an alternative Mk3 Granada (and Scorpio I think) hubs all have ABS, but these have a slightly different geometry so would involve lots of other work to use them properly
