Something Wrong With My Steering Wheel

Every time I give it gas or break my stearing wheel pops or clanks forward and backward. When I give it gas it goes crack crack crack and i can feel it on the the steering wheel i have no idea what this is can someone help me?

Also when im turning and hit a small bump my brakes kind of flutter rapidly and push against my foot. This started happening after i got my posi installed. Its the cheap posi to just the spider gears.

For more clarification its 2006 sport 2x with 3.0 and some minor mods.Has anyone heard any problems with this truck?

Sorry with all the Qs.

that is the ABS kicking in. when it hits a bump or ice or something while braking that isnt smooth road the ABS kicks in because it see's your brakes locking up...
