That sucks Jeff! Out of curiosity, are you using 100 series pads or the stock ones? After running my 80 pads without shims for just a handful of miles I could see where the paint had been worn down to bare metal on the pads.
Is the noise only when you use the brakes, but not always when using the brakes? Seems too coincidental that the abs is going off and you are gettting the noise. But maybe a squeaky ujoint?
Sorry not much help, just random thoughts.
