Can I Disable My Abs? My Rear-end Is Vibrating

Recommended Posts


My 1990 LS400 has 170k miles on it. Just recently, my rear end has been vibrating at high speeds. It is intermittent and my mechanics have had trouble replicating it on their test drives. When I slow down and then stop, and then set off again at low speeds, the vibration goes away. But when I go back to 50+ MPH there it is again.

The first time it happened, I thought I had a flat tire. Then I thought it might be a wheel bearing but they now tell me they believe my ABS is switching on when it shouldn't be.

Can I just disable the ABS and do without it? I don't feel I need ABS but don't want to do anything dangerous. If it's OK to disable, how do I do that?

Thanks for expert feedback from the gurus out there!
