    ok so last night i posted about my drivers side making a clunking nosie when i turn left or turn the wheel left for any reason, i.e. lane changes what not, well now i have noticed that my brake pedal is WAY softer than usual. now the truck makes a noise that sounds similar to the lobbing of a mud tire (I have the rugged trials) all the time, gets worse when i do any kind of left turn action, now heres the kicker when i go to stop for any reason, i hear a loud CLANK and the noise goes away...... i need some insight please.

    You're under warranty. Take it in to get checked out.

    This doesnt sound good. You need to take it to the dealer. Last time I heard of a symptom like this, it was a brake caliper comming off.

    well first and foremost i feel like a dumbass for overlooking something so obvious, as a paramedic i should be a bit smarter, but that being said. "the noise" was a result of someone trying to steal my wheels. they managed to get off or loosen my 4 of my driver side lug nuts, only leaving 2. so i never noticed it, and it sheared off 2 and bent the other 4........ not covered under warranty........ but all fixed up by jim mcnatt in denton..... drives like new.....
