Question ABS on '93 Legacy Turbo???

OK... First of all this is not a question about whether the '93 legacy turbos came with abs, because they do

My question is however... Can the the ABS "system" be shut off without causing drivline problems??? I only ask this because some AWD/traction control systems use the ABS sensor at each hub to detect wheel spin. I don't wanna break the differentials!!!

Also, if this can be done safely, how would you do it? (Unplug harness/sensor, remove fuse)

The reason that I would like to know this is because I may be buying a car like this with "brake pulsing" problems and I think it would be easier(read: cheaper) to try this than immediatly going for a new set of rotors$$$

Thanks in advance for your advice.

You might want to go to: bbs.legacycentral.org

But short of removing the ABS you might want to diagnose the pulsing issue more because it could be something else

I simply unplugged my ABS controller, my ABS light is on, but i can live with it, its better than having ABS. I unplugged the plug closest to the fender. Been unplugged for about 5 months now, Also ive never heard of doing any damage to your drive line by having it disabled to either the differentials or any other parts in my travels.

My $.02 anyway

yeah the awd on a 5-speed is purely mechanical, and the auto uses a sensor that only detects a difference between the front and rear. So it doesn't really care what each wheel is doing individually.

Also the "brake pulsing" think doesn't necessesarily have anything to do with ABS.

I pulled my fuse a few weeks ago. Amazingly different. I ran the car through its paces at the driving school I work at, and if the suspension weren't so dumpy it'd be a real fun ride.

That's going to have to wait. My clutch is going, and I will be several thousand short on tuition/room & board this semester. Spring semester will be even worse.
