NO! You should NOT be able just as easy to change the controller. Here is
why. On my 88 90, the splines on the CV joint are what is read (all ABS
AUdis use this) by the sensor. BUT, Through my whole ordeal of trying
to get a new CV joint, Linda sent me a few of the wrong ones. They have
different splines on the joint. THUS, the computer will read an inacurrate
speed. I put one on not even realizing, and my car pulled to the right
severely. Shut ABS off and it was fine. Now, if you want to change
controllers, just make sure that the CV joint splines are the same
on the car you pull one from. If not, then you are wasting your money.
