    So I’m experiencing a weird kick under my truck when I brake. It only started recently! My truck has 35000km on it and never had any issues! For example: when I’m driving, I will do a full 3 second stop and 1 second after I’ve come to a complete stop, the truck does this weird kick/jerk! It does not make a sound, you really have to be sitting in the driver seat to feel it! I brought it to Toyota to get it checked and they said it’s normal and everything looks fine! This is weird because it never did this before! I’m wondering if anyone has had this problem and if so, what is it and what can I do to fix it?

    Axle wrap. Grease your slip yoke and that motion goes away.

    You might be right, I’ve been reading a lot of forms and this is what most people are saying! Going to try greasing it

    Nope; you'll need to drop the shaft.
    You're also going to need new clamps to re-secure the boot. I suggest the oem clamps; you'll need the crimp tool for those. Everything goes back on, the same way it came off.
    Use Ford XG-8 grease.

    Check your spare. I had this in my '15 and my spare was swinging loose.
