Sounds like a typical "frozen" caliper syndrome, with the car jacked off the ground(preferably on a lift) have someone sit in the cab and hit and release the brake pedal, while they do this test each wheel by hand to see if you can feel it stop turning and then completely release after the brake is released by your partner, if you find one or more that stay holding remove the wheel and inspect the disc pads and hardware for excessive wear and try to pry the caliper piston back into it's bore with a beefy 10" sort of pry/flat bladed screw driver/bar.
If it wont compress the piston or pistons those are the ones you may need to replace, also visually inspect the looks and appearances of the "rubber" brake line hoses that feed to the calipers, they sometimes rot out and cause the same situation, if they are cracked and nasty looking replace them as well, better safe then sorry especially when it comes to brakes, a dollar saved sometimes can cause more damage then anticipated.
Be sure when you do this test the vehicle is only idling in neutral and not in gear for safety sake!!! Also wear protective clothing/eye wear.

Why does the ABS seem to move forward a few more feet when I brake at a stop sign


The ABS feel like a fast pulsing in the brake pedal-- it's unmistakable. If there is no pulsing, then it probably isn't the ABS. The ABS should only kick in when you are stopping quickly on slippery ground. If it is coming on everytime you stop, then there is definitely a problem and this needs to be looked at by a professional-- preferably a dealership for your particular vehicle, though this isn't necessary.

Stopped at stop sign then sometimes i start moving forward what could be causing this


have your breaks and master cylinder pressure checked. maybe your loosing pressure and the brakes are slipping, if it moves and you let off brake and apply again does it hold the car ? On automatics i Have seen a torque converter malfunction that applies torque to trans which would apply pump pressure to trans wanting to make the car very hard to hold,possibly stalling the car out, Possible but uncommon.

When braking, engine revs up and car moves forward


I have a 1997 Ford Explorer with same exact problem. Even worse, my engine revvs so forcibly, that the truck moved forward and struck another vehicles. You need to replace the oxygen sensor annually. My mechanic informed me that this problem is inherently prevalent in Fords. Hopes this helps? Dave

Truck strains to move forward when starting from a stop.


Glad to help. Check those brake linings for any signs of burning...If they have been running too tight it is possible that they have overheated a bit. Also check the emergency brake cable for binding sometimes they get rusted up and stick.
