Joe,
Could possibly be binding in the slip joint where
the driveshaft enters the transmission.  When you are
on the brakes hard and stopping quickly the truck tends
to quickly tip forward which could cause the slip joint
on the driveshaft to slide back on the splined output
shaft of the transmission (a normal thing to happen).
If the slip assembly is dry however, it could be binding
which would cause it not to easily slide back on to the
output shaft when the truck levels back out.  Once the
truck is stopped the joint may be letting loose allowing
it to slide back in making the noise you are hearing.
Stopping slowly may not cause as much movement in this
joint (because the truck wouldn't tip forward as hard
or as quickly) and therefore it wouldn't cause the noise
to occur.  Just a thought.

Later, Brent Bolte

Not a problem...  Mine the sensor itself was bad... looked all corroded
etc... $65.00 for the sensor.

Joe:

If your truck has a two-piece driveshaft, the splined joint under the rubber
boot needs to be lubricated.  That should solve the jolting as it unloads
after a stop.

Well, this one has me stumped. First off, the truck is a 97 Ranger
Supercab - 3.0L 5 spd, 2wd, unmodified suspension. Well, the problem
lies here: If I hit the brakes pretty hard, I get a jolt from the back
end after the truck stops. It feels kind of like being tapped by another
vehicle after I stop. The main thing that confuses me is that the truck
is sitting still for about 1-2 seconds or so and then it comes. I
checked my spare, and it's secure. I don't see anything loose, and the
driveshaft felt solid. It doesn't do it if I am stopping at a slow pace,
but a sudden stop and it will. It just started doing this, since I don't
ever remember it doing it before...Thanks in advance for any
help/advice..

Joe
