Well, the tone ring came in today and I removed the rear hub and installed in about 20 min. I pulled the battery cable while I changed, and when I started the car up the ABS light was still on. However, after driving 50 ft or so (hitting 12mph I think), the ABS light went out.

Drove the car around the block and no lights. What a goober mistake. Cost me 2 weeks of time, about an extra $120 in parts (of course I have a new front bearing in a box if I need) and my pride. My wife congratulated me on a new record. Almost a month to complete a car repair. I just asked her when was the last time she came out in the garage other than to bust my chops. Then said, yea, it is difficult to make it into the garage with the couch stuck to her @$$. She hasn't said anything to me in an hour or so.

Thanks again for the advice and moral support.

Now I get the thing aligned tomorrow.
