rear drums have not been machined properly...they cut a little "screw thread" into the drums causing this thup thup...they are stickin' when they hit bottom~ (if you've got the drum brakes at the rear)~ get them machined properly by a competent brake monkey~

....say, that was a good guess....YOU HAVE drums!~ https://www.google.com/#q=2001+ford+windstar+drum+brakes
