Default 8.8 3 channel abs

keep your fingers crossed I'm working with a guy to make a 106 tooth abs ring that will work with the 8.8 housing. if it works i'll see how many I can get and how much it will cost for those who want to do the 8.8 swap and keep the 3 channel abs.

lol thanks again for the mount hiltsy. I've already read both of those a few weeks back. I meet a guy who said he loves a good challenge so I gave him the ford ring and asked him to make me one the same size but with 106 teeth. I got the abs wiring diagram for the explorer and the Camaro and took the ford sensor and wired it to a spare gm harness. this may or may not work but I'm going to give it that ole college try. what do I got to loose? lol go ahead and get me another mount ready i'll be needing one in a few weeks. thanks again.

Interesting, I hope the Ford sensor works. That will be the easiest path to 3-ch ABS. The ring Colin & I designed for the 10-bolt sensor is a little bigger and he had to do some grinding in the housing to make it fit. Good luck - keep us posted.

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I'd chine in anyway.

The stock tone ring is 106 tooth, while the ford 8.8 is 108, that's a 1.8% increase. Considering the abs is basing wheel speed on the time between each tooth (not all teeth) this should have the same effect as running LARGER wheels up front and SMALLER wheels in the back.

As it stands my tires are 2% larger in the back than the front. I have zero abs issues.

If I installed the stock 8.8 tone ring, my rear wheels will be approximately 0.2% slower than the front according to the abs and I should NOT get an abs light (assuming a 3% abs threshold, I've read abs complaints as low as 4.4% tire size differential front to rear). But if I squared up my tires I don't see an issue arising as that would put me under my current 2% differential.

Any one else have thoughts on this? I'm considering an 8.8 swap and this is one of the issues I'm seeing.

MWC fabricated 9" rear 3 channel ABS is plug and play.... just saying. We also manufacture retrofit kits for other 9" rears as well that were never equipped with it originally.

Hey Rich. Let me know if you'd like a CAD file for the 106T tone ring for the 8.8.

Hiltsy thanks! you already sent it to me, just like to know if the ford sensor will work with GM setup! I spoke to a master tech buddy and he said need to find out if the sensor is digital or analog. said to unplug GM sensor and probe harness with test light or volt meter and see if any power to either lead. If its got voltage its digital. he told me the Ford sensor is analog, so to recap of no voltage at the GM harnes(with key on) the Ford sensor should work if there is voltage we MUST use GM sensor.

my lift is tied up with my sons Trans Am so I havent checked my car yet- anyone have time to check this out?
I'm going to get another torque arm mount from you I'll be doing 2 8.8" builds
maybe more if can make some green

I just got mine finished. I just cut the ears off and ground the housing down enough to get the gm sensor close enough to the reluctor wheel. No lights so far. Only about 25 miles on it so far though.
