Shifting feel when braking

Not too sure on whats going on I think its just that I need new brakes. But when I step on the brakes everything is smooth and it stops good but as soon as I let up of the brake from a stop it feels like a shifting of the axle/bed/frame something to that affect from the rear of the truck. I was thinking its probably just sticky brakes that need some cleaner or to be changed.

I think I know what you're talking about. I don't know what causes it, but I have a similar feeling going on. I notice mine when I go to stop. Once the truck stops you kinda feel a slop somewhere, and feel it again when I let off the brakes to accelerate.

Check the slip joint in the driveshaft, mine did this and was fixed when I re-greased the splines on the slip joint.

What kind of grease did you use? I've heard its best to get it from Ford because it doesn't break down under heat and run out.
