Question ABS Bearing on Non-ABS Car?

Hey guys, I have a question. I have a bad front bearing and the parts place sells a lifetime warranty ABS bearing for cheaper (45$ cheaper) than a 1-Year non ABS one. Are they physically identical? Can I just buy an ABS one and cut the wires? That's what the parts guy told me to do, but I just want to be sure. Thanks!

edit: It's a 2005 non-SS base model with the 4 lug hubs.

They should physically be the same, kind of weird that the abs is cheaper than the non abs though... thats usually the other way around
And if its lifetime warranty I wouldnt cut the wires, just tie them off out of the way.

Yes, I found that funny also that the ABS one is cheaper, he said might be a popularity thing, they buy more of the ABS ones so they might get a better price on them...and good point on keeping the wire on for warranty issues.
