THUMP when stopping

My 2000 7.3 has 149,000 on it. I'm pretty certain the front end hasn't been touched. It just started doing this about 500 miles ago. When I slow from cruise with medium pressure on the brake pedal just before I come to a stop I hear a thumping sound and you can feel something hitting through your foot on the floor board. Had a mechanic look at it, says it's definately suspension oriented but he couldn't find it. I through it up on the lift and couldn't find anything loose. Calipers are tight ball joints are good. I'm at a loss, I could spend some dough and just start replacing stuff but that would be a little counter intuitive.

There is a body mount there and as the brakes are pressed, you feel the truck "lean forward" or nose dive a little. More weight is being transfered to the front axle and is supported in part by these body mount bushings. In my case I could feel the thump on stopping and a light creaking in the floor on speeding up again. Try tightening up the mounting bolt under your feet, but the bushing may need replaced.
