Thud when braking, then less stopping power
So, I've searched back thru alot of braking threads and haven't found a similiar issue as I've got now.
Truck is a E99 F350 Crew cab, long bed 4x4 with a 6 speed and 210000 miles. Truck is completely stock.
When I'm slowing down to a stop. I feel a thud in the driveline somewhere around 15mph and then it seems as if the brakes don't have the stopping power they did before the thud. The truck will still continue to slow and stop but not nearly as well as it was. If I let off the brake pedal after the thud and then reapply the brakes, it seems like brakes are normal again and has plenty of stopping power again. Its like something gets in a bind or you got bumped from behind and the brakes get weak. When I let off and then start braking again, I dont feel anything strange and no more thuds it just stops as it should. I dont drive the truck very often and all I have looked at is the calipers and all mounting bolts are all there. Thats about the extent of what I have looked at so far. I'm going to try to get it in the garage this weekend to get a better look.
Anybody had this problem before or have any ideas? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
