When applying brakes vehicle would pull to left or to right. When driving at highway speeds consumer would hear loud/weired rubbing noise. Consumer took vehicle to dealer. Dealer felt noise was coming from driveline and front end alignment, but could not correct defect.

I returned my truck to Ford dealership complaining of a sharp "clunking" in the driveline when letting up on accelerator. The dealer added 1 qt of transmission fluid, ran computer diagnostics without any indication of a problem. It was requested that I take a dealership technician on a test drive to illustrate problem. The technician stated that the "clunking" was a "normal transmission downshift". the "clunking" has not increased in intensity, but I am not convinced it is normal operation due to 1)the sharpness of the jolt and 2} co-workers exact same model truck does not exibit these symptoms.
