2000 with brake issue

My 2000 F250 is having a problem with brakes. I recently had my rear brakes done. After taking my truck from the shop the abs light started coming on. I had also had the rear pinion bearing replaced so we thought it was probably the rear abs sensor. Also a few times on my way home I went to step on the brake pedal and it seemed frozen. After a second or two it would depress,but was fighting me. Then it disappeared and the brakes seemed fine. I haven't had a chance to get back to the shop and the brake pedal thing has happened a few more times. Could there be air in the brake line ?

Air would make it super soft.

Something similar happened to my friends 99. Somehow the abs was fighting him while stopping in conditions that wouldn't require the use of the abs. Although I don't remember was the final fix was. Try cleaning or replacing the rear speed/abs sensor, couldn't hurt to at least inspect it.

I had my ABS kicking on during stopping. Turned out my CB wires were running next to the module and the RF was kicking it on. So any erroneous RF signals can do it.
