Sounds like timing chain guide probs/broken. I have ran over a year old gas in a car/lawnmower/etc w/no problems. If its like 2+ years old then you might want to look at that.

Yes, the abs sensors for the rear are on the diff, not the spindle/hub. It's only the front hubs/spindles that have the sensors and pickups that you have to worry about for s chassis, obviously the fronts aren't comaptible from the z32's.
