Oh please don't drive in this condition. Sounds like they did not reinstall parts as they should have been. Have it towed to your local brake shop and inspected. This could cause more damage or even injury/death if it comes apart while driving. Please have some one look at it ASAP.

Not exactly sure about your model but most have four bolts that hold the brake caliper bracket in place. This assembly also holds your front bearings in place and lined up with your driveshaft. Your abs sensors are mounted on the back side of it. This wobbling would cause the sensors not to read properly and cause the abs light to come on.

Check the main nut on the end of the axle it could have been left loose. Jack truck up and grab wheel on either side and shake it. You should be able to tell what is loose or broken by doing this.
