Default A couple more weird problems...

I've been noticing now that when I first turn on the truck and back out of my driveway, once I have the steering wheel turned all the way to one end, the truck makes a loud noise like metal is slapping against metal. I can brake to a full stop, but as long as I remain in reverse with the wheel fully turned, it continues to make that sound. It occasionally does this when going forward, but not as loudly. I've had cars that when the steering is fully turned to the stopper that it whines or groans but this one sounds almost like a jackhammer.

The other problem I'm having is that once I get the truck backed out and put it in drive, it feels like the brakes keep going on and off by themselves, I try to go forward but the truck will keep jerking back and then taking off like I'm pumping the brake. After about half a block it goes away and has no more problems.

I would check brakes. Pads, bolts, make sure calipers arnt sticking. Even maks sure that rotors arnt warped also lookinto bearings aswell.
