Hey guys... I'm in bad need of a right front wheel speed sensor for my 1992 roadmaster wagon... I'm assuming any 92 thru 96 will fit as will cars... I've got part number but nobody has it.... gonna be salvage or individual parting out... PLEASE AND THANK YOU

I guess you may be on your own at this point for the RIGHT side.

Dumb Q but is this just to keep the ABS happy? If so could you live without it or is it a safety issue. As far as the part being left hand only.... Can't you just get the left one and turn it 180 degrees? Sorry couldn't resist.... ;)

Actually ive thought about that but haven't ask the tech.... only reason I want it is to turn that stupid light on the dash off.... everytime they clear it... it'll come back on... brakes work fine... never know it isn't there

Hey just my 2 cents but I own a 95 Roadmaster with what I believe to be the same sensor. I sold the car to a friend whom ran the bearings down so far it needed a new spindle. Also ate the speed sensor right up. I had lots of fun trying to find one. When rebuilding that side (inc new spindle) I found my RIGHT SIDE sensor on rock auto here More Information for STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS ALS1389. It appears identical to what the connectors and everything else on your 93 should be. It's a little pricey, but beats the heck out of nothing. I cant see how there would be a difference, they're both just little PM generators making an AC signal so the only thing that could be any different is maybe the resistance they have? (not sure, never ohm'ed one out.) Anyway, Hopefully this helps, know finding parts for these things can sometimes be fun. Also, Word from the wise NEVER let your bearings run bad, because in his case the brake backing plate was ruined as well. They still make the left, but the right, yeah that's junkyard only. 100 mile drive later I got one off a caprice. For some reason all right hand hub parts are impossible to find new anyway. Just trying to help, hopefully this will work for ya!

Hate to reply twice but also forgot to mention I’m parting out a 95 if you think it’ll work I’d more than glad to sell you my current right side speed sensor for $20 plus whatever shipping might be. (Probably not more than 5 or 10 dollars.)
