Brake Pedal Kickback

On my father in laws 04 CC SB 4x4 when I hit the brakes for a split second it feels like the abs kicks on by the pedal kicking back a little. What I was wandering is if anybody else has or had this problem and what you did to fix it. I heard when your truck does this its usually your power steering pump.

The brakes are hydro boost. It uses the power steering pump to supply you with power brakes. If you stab the brakes real quick you will get a little kick back. Mine does that at least and it is the same year as your father in laws.

Becareful with it, you may blow the hydro boost supply line from the powersteering pump.

The truck hasn't always had this problem with the brakes thats just started recently but Ive always suspected something to be wrong with the powersteering because when going in a slight turn you can let go of the wheel and it will stay turn the steering always been a little stiff kind of like it has stiff valved dual stabilizers on small tires. Whats the best way I can flush the pump at home.

2003-07 trucks grabbing brakes, pedal kickback:
This may be caused by power steering fluid contamination in the hydroboost system. There is a procedure for installing a temporary filter between the power steering pump and cooler to clean the system. After the cleaning procedure is complete and no brake grabbing or excessive steering effort is felt, remove and discard the filter. If brake grabbing continues, replace the hydroboost unit.

I'd say go to the dealer with the TSB number and ask them. A tech maybe willing to help.
