Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 1 year ago.

Let me just give my opinion as to what the problem may be, I think the wheel speed sensor wire on the side that had the suspension work done has seperasted, espicially with a lift on it, when the suspension was lowered to get the ball joint out it probably strtched the wire and the thin wire inside broke inside the insulation, to veriyf this you'd have to get a code reader connected to get the diagnostic code, as long as there is an abs malfunction the 4x4 function may be disabled, so you need to address the abs light being on first and see if the speed sensor is the problem , I think it is because I've seen this many times.
