"Thud" sound on brake pedal apply

(1999 Ford Ranger)
in Oak Harbor, WA on October 26, 2009
Noise recently started, gotten progressively worse... upon applying brakes, "thud" sounds at front of truck, noise is louder at low-speeds, however it is present at all speeds.

also, new sound developed as if radiator fan was hitting the shroud, yet it was not... located more towards the left front tire than the right.

any ideas?

Have the suspension checked, you may have some worn bushings that are causing the thud noise. I would check to see if the left front tire is rubbing on the inner fender, which may be caused by the worn suspension, causing the wheel to move and rub on the inner fender. You will likely see this at the rear of the wheel well.
