Love it but slightly sketchy

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT1 4dr Crew Cab 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
I bought this truck sight unseen except for pictures sent via email. I love it but i'm noticing some issues someonelse previously wrote about with the thud noise in the differential. I've also noticed a delay in acceleration. No longer have dealerships here on island and i've also been told those are normal??? Anyone experienced these things and if so...normal????
I love the fact it's a BIG truck. Love everything except those "normal" things i mentioned. Sound system, onstar, storage all great.
I just bought an 08 Silverado 5.3 Extended Cab with the 6 foot bed and I am noticing a loud thud when I come to a complete stop. I am taking it in to see if they can fix it and if not, I hope I don't have to start truck shopping again. I e-mailed the sales guy from CarMax and he says he'll take care of the customer all the way up to buying the car back and getting a different vehicle but I honestly don't believe it till I see it.
I also did research and found a lot of people referring to the slip-yoke, u-joints, and tie-rods. There is a 2009 Bulletin about this but I don't know if it applies to the 08. Here's the link: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t137042.html
Hope this helps,
