WARNING: The electrical power to the air suspension system must be shut
off prior to hoisting, jacking or towing an air suspension vehicle.
This can be accomplished by turning off the air suspension
switch located in the LH rear quarter trim panel. Failure to do so
can result in unexpected inflation or deflation of the air springs,
which can result in shifting of the vehicle during these
operations. Failure to follow these instructions may result in
personal injury.
CAUTION: Suspension fasteners are critical parts because they affect
performance of vital parts and systems and their failure can result
in major service expense. A new part with the same part number
must be installed if installation becomes necessary. Do not use a
replacement part of lesser quality or substitute design. Torque
values must be used as specified during reassembly to make
sure of correct retention of these parts.
NOTE: Have an assistant press the brake pedal to keep the axle from
CAUTION: Do not allow the caliper to hang from the brake hose or
damage to the hose can result.
8. Remove the bolt and detach the harness from the retainers.
? To install, tighten the bolt to 15 N.M (11 lb-ft).

wheel speed sensor as an assembly.
? Route the sensor wiring through the access hole in the brake shield.
? Discard the bolts.
? To install, tighten to 185 N.M (136 lb-ft).
10. If necessary, remove the wheel speed sensor bolt and the wheel speed sensor from the wheel
