I have a 2008 Titan LE with 39k miles. I have a weird sound that just started. This only happens when the truck is cold from the starting position. At 5-7 mph, just before the truck goes into the next gear, I hear a sound from the front drivers side that sounds like a loaded spring releasing. It is only when the vehicle is cold and only in the 5-7mph range. Is this normal? Any thoughts? Thanks.

i believe that would be the abs self test. if the sequence of events goes like this: 1: shift from 1st to 2nd, 2: abs self test (what i think your hearing), 3: doors lock directly after, 4: shift into 3rd (under light acceleration)...then thats normal. i think it actually happens closer to 10-15mph for me but never really looked that closely.

It's probably the ABS self test and is perfectly normal.
