Subject: 9000 brakes

hi, i recently swapped the rear axle on my 9000T with another one. now i have the problem that my brake pedal feels really shuddery and back-pressures due to the anti-lock system kicking in where it should not, i. e. normal soft braking. brake effect is normal just sometimes the anti-lock light will come up and the abs-system is turned off then. its kind of strange that this is just happening when im driving more than around 30 km/h. first i thought this would be rusty brake discs, so i cleaned them and now they look all shiny but the problem is still there, so i looked around the web and i found out that there are 2 different kind of abs-sensors. i guess i have 2 sets of the old ones, how would i adjust them to 65/100 mm ? could it also be the back side of the brake discs being dirty or something like that? i also have no handbrake function at all on the left caliper,while the normal brake works just fine, how can i fix this? is rebuilding the caliper doable? i dont really wanna go through bleeding and refilling my brake fluid system and i dont have brake hose clamps or anything like that... or would it be better to get refurbished calipers (in exchange with my old ones), i should better get 2 calipers then right? any input greatly appreciated bye simon
