    I was driving my 2007 Tacoma to work and the ABS light came on then a few miles later my truck pulled hard to the right. I drove home jacked up the front end and had a lot of play in left wheel bearing. I replaced the wheel bearing I also replaced the rotors and pads because they were due with 90K miles on them. When I went for a test drive the front wheels make a god awful grinding nose like both brakes are locked up. The ABS light is still on. I am at a loss so any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Are they locking up? Is the noise constant or just when applying the brake?

    I would jack up the offending wheel and spin it with the wheel off and look for contact points between rotor and pads, or rotor and anything else. You have the 4 piston calipers correct? Are the pins and clips in and not bent? Does the caliper and rotor look straight?

    Is there a way to disable the abs system to eliminate it. I can't drive the truck and have no way to check codes

    I bought the first hub assembly from nj636. He did a good job on it and was quick about getting it shipped to me. I didn't notice the bad bearing when I replaced the rotor because the bearing had a tight spot in it. When it was in a certain position it was tight with no play but if you spin it a little bit then there was excessive play but it didn't make a noise.
