Yup thats what I gathered from looking at diagrams of both. ABS using same part number bearing top and bottom and non abs uses a different bearing up top i.e. roller bearing.

If there is no race in the swivel ball is it still going to be obvious?

Thanks for the pics Jeff

Ok so is it safe to say this is an ABS indicated on the flange?

ABS uses the Railco bushed swivels cz the ABS sensor pokes down thru the hollowed out pin. I may be mistaken, but I do not believe there is anything like a top roller bearing (small pin) swivel that's ABS.

I dont follow?

From what I have gathered

ABS uses this bearing up top http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/FTC2065.cfm?gpf which sits between two washers in the housing on that lip beneth the swivel pin

The non abs style ueses these top AND bottom http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/606666.cfm

Not sure where the railko bushing is coming in? I know series trucks use railko bushings (http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/443.cfm)? Or maybe I am stupid and thats what I call washers?
