Question Vibration at 50mph & higher

Hopefully someone can help. I just bought a 2001 F-350 that has 122,000 miles on a 7.3. I get a vibration when I get to speeds of 50mph or higher and it you really only notice it when you are the driver. The passenger side you really don't feel it. Any ideas what might cause this would be greatly appreciated.

if its a driveline vibration it is more than likely unbalanced tires, there are some other things it could be, but this is the most common. if its an engine vibration.....give a few more details....like does throttle position affect it and is there a noise associated with it????Marc

Well after replacing U-joints, rotors, brake pads, and having my tires balanced I replaced the carrier bearing and it took about 95% of the vibration out.
