Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) Inside automatic transmission assembly.
Wheel Speed Sensor-LF On left front wheel hub assembly.
Wheel Speed Sensor-RF On right front wheel hub assembly.
Wheel Speed Sensor (WSS) - LR Attached to left rear wheel hub.
Wheel Speed Sensor (WSS) - RR Attached right rear wheel hub
I'm sure the code indicates that your ABS sensor went out. It's located in the front wheel hub assembly, and to change it, you need to replace the entire front bearing/hub assembly. They are about $150 per. But it the truck is handling ok and you can deal with the light, it's not a big deal since it's just a sensor....
Could be bad or sticking hubs, wheel bearings or u joints. When you said it went away when 4wd engages tells me that your right its partially engaged. Had the same issue with my 95 SUV 2yrs ago and had to replace the locking hub assembly. It had the electronic auto hubs. They were shot and starting to fall apart.
Take the car out on a quiet parking lot(no traffic) get it up to speed and when the noise is occuring turn the car to the right and to the left...did the noise go away???
I think on one of those turns it did...if it went away on the left turn the left front wheel bearing/hub assembly is bad and needs replacement, if it went away on the right turn the right side hub/bearing needs replacement. Hope that helps!!

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Have a nice day, good luck.
Why would you put tape on the rotors when doing brakes? Once calipers are removed, rotors come right off. Never saw any seal on rotors and don't know what a seal would do there....Unless it's put there on assembly line to keep rotor from falling off? I wouldn't be concerned.
