F250 rear bounce

Anyone out there with rear hopping around 45-50 mph?

There are several threads on here and no one, including myself, has positively identified the culprit. We have tried: rebalancing tires, added leaves to the rear, comparing spring pack codes against trucks that dont bounce, replaced carrier bearings, sulastic springs, shaving tires, new shocks, new u-joints, aligning the driveshaft with a laser....ect. So far there is no pattern or consistency that we have found, one other thing that Im going to try is adding a rear sway bar as my truck came without one. I also got another idea from a friend and Im trying to figure out how to attach a 3x3x1/2" angle to the bottom of the frame and see if it is coming from the frame getting a harmonic bounce in it under the cab. I dont know the answer yet but Im too hardheaded to give up, these trucks are too nice to have this aggravating bounce. Good luck and please share anything you find out.

You need to get a GoPro camera so that you can mount it in different spots under the truck and video it while driving! It might catch the culprit red handed.

We actually talked about that last week, but were hoping someone would find the issue before buying a camera. Good idea though! Thanks.

I heard air bags might be the only solution. Or add 500 lbs to ur bed. So have had it on my truck since day one.

I know it's a 6.4 but not much change between rear suspension in 6.7.
