Question about "drop" when stopping

I have a 2008 F250 w/ a 4" Rancho lift and 325/60/r20's. When I come to a stop, I notice a "dropping" feeling in the rear.

It's like it shifts hard into first gear at the last minute, I can't tell what it is.

Maybe someone can help me with what this is.

Could it be something with the way these brake, or should I take it in?

Thanks,

Logan

Mine and many others does this also. Mine doesn't do it in the cold mornings but after a few miles of deiving and warming up it seems to do it more. Something about greasing the drive shaft heavily or something. I haven't had it checked out yet since it has been doing it forever. Let us know what you find. Thanks

I think that I'm going to run up to the dealer tomorrow. Try to get them to "warranty" it.

Did you find anything else out with the trip to the dealer?

Never made it to the dealership on the issue. I might just lube it up myself (seen how to from other threads), and see how it goes.
