I'd say linkage or worn clutch.

Clutch is either burned or worn ... if the clutch had just be worked on then it probably got grease on it

i was talking to a couple other guys and they said the mass air flow sensor

If you notice that the truck idles poorly or dies when turning your steering wheel, you have a bad power steering pressure switch. If that's what you meant by "flexing" on a curb. The switch sends a signal to the ECU for more or less idle to compensate for harder turns.
