Vibration at 50....

Ok it's an 06 f350..... Had problems with tire balance etc ended up new rims and tires due to cracked rim. Previous I had rear axle seal replaced had a small vibration at 70, chalked it up to tires. Then I had new carrier bearing and new u joints installed. Now truck starts vibration at 50, bad enough shakes mirrors. Still does it with new rims and tires exactly like when I had other sets of tires and rims. Does it from 50 on feels like a tire not balanced but can't drive out of it. Any ideas since I already had u joints and carrier replaced. Gotta take it back to shop but wanted to get some ideas to assist them. They are a little baffled by it as well. Thanks

Does the drive shaft show any signs of a weight being on there and is now missing?

I've heard of guys clocking the drive shaft too. (disconnect from rear diff, rotate 90*/180* one way or the other)

Just throwing out some things I would try - Don't know if it will fix anything.

I took it to shop today they gonna take off the shafts and send em out to check em for balance. Said he's seen it before especially we use a bunch of salt here in the winters rust or weight comes off cause of rust. So I will see by Friday I hope. What is clocking the shaft, what does that do to it.

My 04 excursion had a bad vibration right around 50, then picked it up again around 70. Of course the 2 speeds I travel at most often. Got worse and worse and I was ready to take it to a shop, changed the tires and the problem went away with them...
