after taking my truck to badlands offroad park to ride quads (200 mile round trip) I pulled into my neighbor hood and coming to a stop my truck started to vibrate. I thought it might have been something to do with my abs cause the light was on the whole trip home. Replaced the sensor on the rear and took it for a test drive and nothing changed. I am wanting to say it has nothing to do with the brakes because it does it whether I am braking or not. Ive read alot of post on the drive shaft carrier but everybodys speeds seem to be alot higher than mine. I dont notice any vibration like this higher than 15 mph. Hope this is enough info

Have you found out what the problem is yet, I'm have the same trouble with my truck(2001 F350 4x4) It started when I was going faster and in a few days does it all the time now.

I have seen Front Hub bearings go bad and cause both concerns. ABS light and vibration. The bearing can go bad and damage the sensor. Sometimes they vibrate at high speeds and some at low.

I was told last night to look at the front hub bearings as well, I had the truck inspected last week and last night found the passanger side was in the locked position. I jacked the truck up and both tires spun freely. I'll take it back to were I had it inspected. Thanks for the help. My truck vibrate more at higher speeds.

you need to check the bearings for play. A hub staying locked all the time can also cause vibration

I took the truck to a friend and found the right and left outer tie rods need to be replaced. He thinks that might be were the vibration is coming from. He did check the hub bearings and u-joints and said everything was tight. I have already bought the parts and I'm also going to replace the locking hubs as well, what brand should I use. I was looking at Warn, standard replacement hubs. I'm also going to replace the sway bar bushing because the are pretty beat.
