Bed loose? I've had a truck that would rattle the seats like that, bed was loose and moving up and down at speed.

I also thought about the bed, but it seems soo much like a drivetrain issue.

I dont know.

Dave is at work right this second getting it checked out.

Alignment is in spec the caster is fine. Checking the balance on the driveshaft as I type this. Next ill be checking the balance on the road force balancer. If all checks out I'm gonna hit up those bed bolts like previousely stated.

EDIT: driveshaft is balanced.

That would be wild if your bed bolts were loose causing the problem. Who would have thunk?

Hey Dave, I remember something from a while back.
Do you remember when you spilled motor oil in your passenger seat? Well, thats causing the shaking.

one wheel took a solid TEN OUNCES. But that's not the shake. Truck ate a hub yesterday but its not SUPER killed yet just some play. Anyways the shake is so intermittent i can diagnose it. sometimes ill be cruising smooth and then it will come and shake the entire truck. The wheel shakes side to side too. Im stumped

Yeah lol. I went back in time from reading the thread, and sent Dave a text telling him not to spill the oil ALL OVER HIS SEAT!! hahaha.

And when I came back....Dave's truck had a 451, SAS'd, d-60s on 38's. And a little hula girl bobble thing on the tool-box.

Seat is NICE and smooth, but nothing like those fusion seats you could have had
