    OKay - title pretty much says it all... VS berlina, ABS (duh) Live rear.

    Replaced wheels hubs (non-genuine, i know tut tut $$ consideration unfortunately) and now, the front speed sensors are reading 20km/h higher than the rears are, so needless to say, the ABS computer is well, not happy Jan.

    The hubs are apparently the correct ones, but somehow, i dont think so... Any suggestions gents ??

    Cheers,
    David.

    This may sound silly, but are you sure it's a live axle? As far as I know, all VS Berlina's came out with IRS (unless somebody wants to correct me, or you've done the live conversion). Not sure how much that factors in though.

    ah yeah - its live, one big long heavy lump of metal from one side to the other. i wish it was IRS, but then, i'd probably just sit there looking at the stupid rear wheel camber and need to spend more money on a camber kit.

    Sounds like you put the wrong front hubs in. Hub for non abs, abs live axle and abs irs are all different.
