What is an exciter ring?

Hi gang:
I have my '95 TJ in the shop to get the front axle u-joints replaced. Mechanic called my wife at home and said "his fault, he broke the exciter ring, and he will fix it, but it will take a bit longer"

O.K., what the heck is an exciter ring?? ( I searched, found very little)

He is no doubt talking about what the FSM calls the "tone wheel" and is also called a "tone ring" by some. It is the notched ring (looks kind of like a gear) that is mounted on the axle shaft just inboard of the unit bearing. It is part of the ABS.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

O.K., mdm, THAT makes sense, never heard it called that before.
Thanks again

I think he was hitting on your wife.

I'm safe. She prefers a man with teeth. (although he is a better mechanic than I am)
