Sharp turn steering problems

So i was driving today and I had to stop really really short and quick. And ever since that my truck seems a little off. First, all the sudden when ever i turn in parking lots or wherever the truck pops and jolts and it even holds itself with the wheel turned and no breaks. Then also when I am turning and I give it even the smallest bit of juice it hesitates a bit and the jumps foward. Also, some times when i am excelerating it just in a straight line it almost seems kinda like it is slipping a bit somewhere. I am just wondering if that is normal? And then finally, there is a point that when i am cruzing going any speed that if i get the gas pedal there then it will just start vibrating. This truck has just been one big headache. Any help that you guys can give me will help. Thank you in advance.

That's how mine acts. In 4WD. Careful not to "force" it while turning. If you have 4 wheel drive, and don't have 4WD engaged, it may have engaged on its own - it is electronically controlled.
