If the non ABS axles do not have the sensor rings, you will not have ABS brakes.

Yes, you can use them and drive the car. No, you cannot use them and everything be correct. Halfshafts for ABS cars have a sensor ring and without it, you'll set off your ABS light and won't have ABS. You'll also lose traction control if you have it.

the abs rings (sensors) are on the side of the axle closest to the rearend, it has nothing to do with the hub end of the axle, they're the same.

I think everything has been said in this thread. The abs and/or traction control will not work if you do not have the toner rings for them. They will fit, they just won't work completely correct.

if you want to feel what your car would be like without abs pull the high current fuse and turn off the traction control. Thats what its going to be like without the rings..except the front might still work? Idunno?

No, the front won't even work. It's not a split system. If one sensor fails, the whole system is shut off.
