  1. ABS kicking in

    Over the weekend I swapped the rear axle in wife's Explorer Sport as existing axle was howling. I removed the brakes from old axle and transplanted to new so lines were never opened. I did initially forget to reconnect the differential sensor but realized real quick when ABS light stayed on...
  2. Modern Technology

    So, while I was waiting for Ford to come out with Ranger, I bought and F-150. Went to in-laws, 15 miles of gravel roads to their place at end of 800km drive, then same back. Some place in there, a stone clipped an ABS sensor. So, the truck lost anti lock brakes (message flashed on screen)...

  6. Torsen in rear too?

    So, I have have to swap gears on front differential from one housing to another because of corrosion/my ham fist nature. So, will be doing Torsen in front. For the rear, I have 5 choices: 1. Do nothing (leave Ranger 8.8 with 4.10s/open alone) 2. Install Explorer axle (will need to swap the...

    The truck: Lil Blue - '98 Ford Ranger Splash, 5spd and seized 3.0. The plan: Replace the M5ODR1 with M5ODR2 Install 5.0l. 8.8" with discs is on future's list. The conundrum: I can get sweetheart deal on a '98 Explorer. But reading the swap page, that 5.0 doesn't have the return less fuel...
