Rear end shift

I have a 99 250. When I take off froma stop, I feel a shift in the rear end. I had somebody drive while I looked and I saw the rear end shift. All the bolts are tight. Any idea?

Check the bushings in the rear springs. I've personally seen the bushings get "wallowed out" over time in some smaller rigs. I have no personal experience with a truck of this size as far as those bushings go, but it's an idea to check that could be obviously overlooked. Good luck with it.

Do you have lift blocks? If so, the axle will try to wrap the springs when you take off. If your springs or shocks are weak, it will be more noticable. You may need traction bars or something of that nature.
