Trailer's Dickin' with my ABS....

With my trailer hooked up to my '95 F-250, my towrig's left steer brake has a tendency to lock up on a hard stop. Doesn't happen when I'm not pulling my trailer. I had to do a panic stop from 60 mph on the way to the last club event and I fawken flat-spotted my left steer tire. This sucks bigtime as I ground of a full 3/16" of tread. Anybody else ever had this happen?

Does a 95 Ford have front ABS? Could it be that the front has less weight on it causing a side to side brake imbalance to show itself? Just thinking out loud.

I'm 99% sure that the trucks were RWABS only until the 99's came out. Sounds like there's something up on the right side. Sticking caliper perhaps.

Thanks....I didn't look any farther than to see that the master cylinder had a black box.
