Hi Dixiemae, I'm originally from Tulare, (left 30yrs ago), Anyway have had some here in Texas with problems with cab bushings. The weather here is a lot like Tulare County. Have had to put hard thin plastic spacers between cab and bushings with a little grease. It happens periodically. Mostly during uneven pavement, and slowing on turns with uneven surfaces. Hope this helps with your problem.
2001 F-250 Super Duty 4X4 FYI 11-25-2013 found and fixed the problem. Took Truck to a shop and witnessed inspection and found excess play in both Ball Joints. Drivers side was worse than passenger side. Shop installed Camber/Caster Bushing Drivers side, Upper and Lower Ball Joints both sides, Tie Rod End at Pitman and Both Sway Bar Bushings. Aligned front end and noise is gone. Thanks so much for your help.

You should have had obvious noises just driving and turning, instead of just stopping. Sometimes it's hard to predict all that, when you aren't presented the vehicle to inspect for yourself. Was just trying to give some direction for the information that you had given, and the possibilities of the cause from what we have encountered over many years of repairing vehicles. Thanks for asking, and wished we could have checked the vehicle ourselves to find your problems. Oh and didn't hear anything about the looseness in your steering, "IE" pitman arm. Have a great holiday season.
It's a 4 wheel drive. Any difference on what to check? FYI 11-25-2013 found and fixed the problem. Took Truck to a shop and witnessed inspection and found excess play in both Ball Joints. Drivers side was worse than passenger side. Shop installed Camber/Caster Bushing Drivers side, Upper and Lower Ball Joints both sides, Tie Rod End at Pitman and Both Sway Bar Bushings.
