Unless the sensors are individually checked it cannot be establised but if the fault is occuring at all times you canbe concerned otherwise if you are driving safely the ABS will not come to use unless on a wet condition. So if the wheels moved differently the ABS would click to adjust.
What can be done is to check all the four wheel sensors , clean and inspect and leave it off than spending more money without a confirmation-- a faulty ABS system.

My 1996 Chevy Suburban is experiencing low, intermittent noise and vibration that can be felt through the steering wheel and seats. This only occurs at 50 to 55mph and not constant like an unbalanced

possible wheel bearing at fault. if it heard/felt more when turning or swerving and is a growling type noise, more than likley is. possible bad tire shouldnt be over looked. is abs light on? most often when wheel bearing is bad a speed sensor ( within wheel bearing ) will go open, setting abs light. vehicle needs to be ran on a hoist to try and duplicate noise/vibration.

Starter solenoid replace , when do I know it's the solenoid, and not the starter motor itself ?

If the solenoid goes bad, the starter will spin freely creating a loud noise. If the starter is bad, you generally here a click noise (the solenoid kicking out but the starter not turning)

Diagnosis faults of ABS

The number one "fault" of ABS is the NOISE that it makes when the ABS is activated. It makes a horrible banging noise, the brake pedal pulsates, and, if you have never heard it before, you'd swear that the front end was being hit by a lot of hammers. That being said, ABS is really a good idea to be on all cars. The only downside is that it does not work at all if the vehicle is sliding on ice, and all 4 tires are sliding. Then, there is no traction for the ABS to pulse fluid to a specific wheel or wheels.

Sounds like a bad ABS sensor in the system. The quick fix is to locate the ABS fuse in your fuse panel, remove this fuse and abs is disabled. Your brake will function normal and it is safe to drive w/o abs until you can have it checked out, keep in mind you will lock you brakes under heavy braking conditions.

hope this helps
