Mitsubishi ABS Wheel speed sensor

About a week ago I hit the curb near my house with my front left tire avoiding one of the neighborhood cats. I wasn't going very fast, about 10 mph, but fast enough to scratch my stock rims pretty badly. Now I have noticed that when the temperature gets really cold I am getting the abs failing symptom where the car while coasting in neutral will stick to about 2000rpm until the car is below 12mph. It doesn't happen all the time but usually when the temperature gets close to freezing.

The ABS light has been on for a while but this symptom is new. I never bothered to deal with the ABS because here, cars this old can pass inspection easily. It is a 1991 vr4 btw. I am contemplating disabling the abs. I am going to try to replace the relay under the hood to see if it is sticking because I am not really inclined to get under the car and check the speed sensors right now (it is like 30 degrees and I work on cars in my driveway).

If the relay doesn't fix the issue, could I just pull the relay and fuse that are under the hood and disable the system? I don't mind the abs light being on for the time being until I get some time/better weather to actually tackle the issue?

I guess a more concise question would be: Is there a way to disable to abs without having to rip the rear quarter panel apart? I do not mind the abs light staying on.

Never having done the ABS delete I can't give you any first hand intel but maybe these will point you in the right direction.

luck
