Vibration Problems around 55-65mph

I have been getting a vibration right between 55-65mph. It stops when I accelerate, it weakens when I let off the gas and I don't press the brake, and is worse when I maintain 60mph. It feels like I am driving on a rumble strip on the side of the freeway.

Any ideas of what it may be is greatly appreciated

Speed specific is usually a balance problem in my experience. Check tires first , then start looking at alignment , ball joints , tie rods , wheel bearings , pitman or idler arm. Check u joints. If tires are newish it could be a tire , just fought a vibration on my wife's tahoe for months , had several shops look at it , diagnose it , then I'd bring it home and replace parts as it was beyond anything I was finding. A road force balance finally revealed a tire that a regular balance never picked up and cured the problem.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's modded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC's poo on any of it, never will.

start with u joints in the drive shaft and have a shop check the balance. i lost the weight on my rear drive shaft and it caused a vibration at 70. the other thing was the u joints on the front axle. replaced both front wheel bearings and still had the same noise at 70 that sounded like a bad grumbling wheel bearing. ended up being a drivers side u joint was bad.
