Hopping feeling at 70 - 80 km/h

Truck is a 2007 F250 Lariat 4X4. Over the past several months I have been getting an intermittent hopping feeling from the rear end between 70 - 80 km/h. Thought it may have been a balancing issue so had the tires all road force balanced but still the same issue. Rear end bearings were done in January. Anyone with similar issues?

Is it hopping or skipping? FICM and/or injector failure can do the same thing. Just a thought. Before I replaced my FICM I would get what felt like a hop between 55 - 65 MPH. Turned out my FICM was failing. Might want to check it out and it's free so what can it hurt? Good luck and let us know what you find out.

I wondered the same thing but I've found that if I shift into neutral and coast at the same speed that the hopping feeling is still there.

The dreaded Super Duty vibration... Lots of people complain about this, never heard of a complete 100% cure. Some brand new trucks do the same thing.

supposedly this is due to the wide wheel base causing a hop feeling...

Vibration/Hop at 40-48 MPH, Trucks with Trailer Hitch:
Some 2005-07 F-Super Duty trucks with long wheel base (over 156") may exhibit what is described as a hop on smooth or coarse road surfaces. Although Ford considers this to be characteristic of trucks with a GVW of over 8500 pounds, some drivers may be more sensitive to the condition. There is a damper kit (P/N 5C3Z-5D008-A) available to correct the hop under the described conditions. It will not correct shimmy, harsh ride or vibration after hitting bumps. TSB #07-5-11.

Since I originally posted this question I've noticed that the hopping isn't constant. It will hop for a day or two then it will smooth out for a few days. Could shocks be the issue??
