most speed sensors are attached to the whole wheel housing body. There should be a cable running fown behind your wheel hub housing that secures into the side behind the brake. This is the speed sensor. Trany sensor should either be on the side or top of the trany.


You should not have to strip the wheel hub this much jsut hte caliper and rotor but all relativly in the same spot.
