Brake Job

I'm doing the brakes myself on all 4 corners. The ABS light came on. Plus, they really need to be done. Here are some questions. Do I have to replace the sensors, and if I don't will the ABS light stay on? And I am going to use KVR Performance slotted rotors and pads. Any feed back on them?

You should replace the pad wear sensors when you do the brakes anyway, but I don't *think* it will cause your light to go out so much as actually doing the brakes might. Worn brakes could cause the ABS light to come on, but it could be many other things (seized caliper, bad/dirty wheel sensor, bad relay, incorrect tire size, etc). Hopefully it's just because your brakes are shot.
