    this sounds like it could be an ABS problem. We would need more information to give you a more accurate guess at what it is though. If it happens at low speeds, or as you are approaching a stop, it is your anti-lock brakes, which are known on these trucks to engage for no reason while braking at low speeds, making it difficult to stop. In this case, if I am not mistaken, the cause would usually be the front wheel speed sensors.

    Yes it seems to happen more at low speeds around town, than coming to a stop from highway speeds it is a 2001 chevy silverado 1500 4x4 with a 5.3 . let me know if you need anymore info.
    Thank You

    The only way I could upload a copy of the service bulletin for what I think the problem is was to save it as images and host on photobucket (pdf file was too big to upload here). I have included these pictures in this post so you can see if this bulletin covers your problem.
