ABS malfunction?

I've searched this forum and 4x4wire on my present ongoing problem with my truck. If you've seen my post on 4x4wire, pls bare with me for others may not have seen it. Any helpful suggestions is greatly appreciated.
All right, I got it diagnosed for the 2nd time and the tech gave me a different diagnosis from the first one (different shop). This truck is driving me crazy!!!
Let me know what you guys think.

1st Tech - diagnosed it with broken right front speed sensor and deceleration sensor ($1400 parts and labor).
2nd Tech - diagnosed it with since the ABS light is on the braking system is all jacked up that the braking proportion is not all equal-----> which ABS actuator needs to be replaced............WOW $$$$$!!!!!

How it started: did a panic stop last year and ABS light and airbag light came on; but looked into 4x4wire post and seems like having and not having an ABS is not an issue....so left it alone (probably why braking proportion is not distributed evenly, which screws up both of my front rotors).

Present day: Once in awhile the ABS light goes off; which gives me good braking. I've noticed right before the ABS light comes on upon braking, I've notice something grinding or a winding up spring on my right foot area(gas foot) when applying the brakes (Master brake cylinder??)and could not slow down and have to pump the brakes from me to stop------>thats some scary ˟˟˟˟˟!!

Conclusion: Don't have the funds to get it fixed the right way ( will cost over $2000 for repairs), thought about driving it to a telephone pole and just pay the deductable ($500)which is much cheaper to get it fixed; one thing I don't have an airbag
Any recommendations?? ........I hate to trade it in, truck is already paid for.


Thanks in advance for your input guys!! Have a Happy Holiday!!

Um, your airbag light came on also?????? Sounds like you have a faulty ABS accuator ot brake booster, although your airbag light coming on is peculiar. I seriously doubt it has anything to do with a broken wheel sensor wire. My brothers got a '99 Taco with a broken wheel sensor and his drives fine outside of the ABS light being illuminated all the time. What type of shop are you taking your veh to? I'd ask for an technical explanation from the mechanic him/herself. Seriously, ask questions when you take your veh in and I'd go to reputable shop that is Toyota specific.
