I had the same problem on my Tribute, not sure on the Dodge but in my case it turned out to be a cracked tone ring on one of the front ones. No ABS light and only activated pulling into parking spots. I ended up replacing the other one soon thereafter. Darn rust!

I believe you maybe right. About 4 months ago my abs light came on and my speedometer was fluctuating. I took out the speed sensor out of the rear end of my truck and exchanged with a new one. I did notice there was some metal chunks on the old one. But it did fix the problem. This time no abs light just abs acting up so I changed speed sensor and it did not fix problem. When I changed speed sensor before I put new one in I put my finger in the hole the sensor goes in and I felt the ring and it was very sharp. Like something hit the teeth. From what I have been reading Dodge trucks have been having a lot of problems with clips coming off. I guess this is not going to be a quick fix looks like it will be taking the rear axle cover off and replacing some parts. I have 112000. Miles on the truck but its in mint condition other than this problem I guess I have some work to do. Thank you for your help and confirming a problem that I suspected I had to fix.
