Question 2004 Ford Ranger XLT antilock brake problem

I have a 2004 XLT that every time the wheel is turned to the right and you come to a stop the antilock kick in for the last second when you come to a stop. It seems to be getting worse and worse, as in happening more often. I have had both front wheels off a few times now, the breaks arenít binding as far as I can tell. Any ideas?

i would guess its a wheel bearing/ hub assembly. have you noticed any noise like a growl or anything at lower speeds? when the hub assemblys go bad they can make the ABS sensor freak out because the sensor is part of the hub. have you jacked it up and checked for play in the wheel bearings/ hub assembly?
