Agreed, probably a wheel speed sensor

Wheel speed sensor or an intermittent connection to one of them.
The brakes feel funny because low traction sensor is part of the ABS system

One in each front wheel hub, and one in the differential case for a posi traction car
and one on each rear wheel for a non posi car.
