Bouncing on freeway empty

On some parts of the freeway my truck bounces very bad at times. I don't want to put weight in the bed when I'm not pulling my trailer. Has anybody used the Solastic Bushing to reduce bouncing ?

Although my truck is stock it rides like crap on concrete roads. As you stated it bounces like crazy on the joints.

Crew cab long bed trucks? Seems to be a inherent problem with them on the long wheel base trucks, the frames flex.

I have the shortbed and it does the same thing. I know this is a 6.7 forum but our frames are nearly identical. I thought it was from the toolbox I put across my bed, but I was unsure. Glad to hear I'm not the only one experiencing this. It's sooooo annoying.

What tire pressure you running? I tow often at max so I run 75 psi in the front and 80 in the rears to take full advantage of my GAWR. Sticker says run 65psi for 10000 GVWR. Tires are E rated and at 85psi allow me to run beyond full axle rating of 12000. ( axle rating out of the bok is5840# front 6200 rear) its a f250 registered at 10000. Dot do not care about your registered weight only you gross axle. So on a family trip I air down to 65 psi and have much less bounce. 80psi empty and got to hold on tight she'll bounce into the next lane!

Look up Frame Beaming "some" Not all,Extra cabs and Crew cabs can have this! I had a 09 GMC extra cab that did it real bad just about had to give it away!

They did get rid of about 60% of the beaming by replacing the two rear cab mounts with hydraulic Mounts but i could still feel it and Got rid of the Truck ,Damn Shame, Nice Steel Gray paint Job on that One LOL

Would rear sway bars or traction bars help this?

I don't see how?
axle wrap isn't the problem.

i run BFG shackles and airbags on My 06 to help

but fortunately I am almost never with an empty bed
