Thanks for the information. Now the questions comes to mind whether those particular brakes ever experienced a recall. I know my Alpine (72127) wasn't on the recall list but, as far as I know, that list only addressed Bosch brakes.
I will say that after cleaning, lubing and reassembling them they sure didn't move without a great deal of force. The wedge had to be hammered into place before the retaining bolts would line up properly.
However, after driving the Alpine and using the brakes to stop from 55 MPH on a downhill stretch, both front sides indicated the same temperature (rotors were about 250 degrees; the hubs at about 100 degrees).
Also, the ABS sensor is not plastic but rather a push-in cylinder-like metal probe with a long electrical lead.
Any help anyone can provide regarding a replacement sensor will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again, Ray.
