i was gonna say that maybe you have a rock in your brakes or something, but the abs light is probably a pretty good indication of a bad bearing then imo

Not a good idea. I'd ask the rents for money if you don't have your own. No need to be dramatic about it, but this is important :imo
the rents are still mad about my steering they paid $300 for, they have plenty of money and wont even pay for my senior prom...id about rather run it for 2 weeks and be scared then replace it on my own then hear them bitch for months about it

do you have the sealed units or not? probably not if you said you greased them up before, i dont know then, i have the sealed units and they were a piece of cake to change, except for one froze bolt that gave me some trouble
