    it was IN an 80s suburban? What axle? That is a tone ring for a wheel speed sensor. You will commonly see the setups in Fords. They have a wheel speed sensor up on top of the differential (above the pinion area) and it picks up that rings revolutions. Its part of the ABS system. A factory 80s Burb wouldn't have come with that.

    1990-91 Burbs (and K5's) had that absymal rear wheel ABS... maybe it was one of those, would look like an 80's truck to the unsuspecting :thinking:

    The ABS sensor on those is on the tailshatf of the t-case. I know I didn't have a speed sendor in my 90 burb rearend.

    I believe that type of carrier is from the mid 90s Chevy Impalas with the 8.5 10bolt rear end. They definately had their ABS sensor on the carrier.

    The part about "I found it IN a Burb" made me assume it was actually ATTACHED to said Burb :haha:
