When he pulled the strut off, hence the abs sensors, he did not put the abs
sensors back in the correct position....  Anytime you have to pull the abs
sensors, you should put new little plastic tips (dealer @ .80) back on the
ends of the sensors and push in till it rests on the splines... a You will
get AC voltage from the sensors when they are reading, sounds like one or
both of the rears have a no read from the abs circuit = defaults to OFF so
you won't skid out of control....
