Mine is doing the exact same thing. Anything over 65mph is about my start of it. On some roads, it doesn't seem to to it as bad. I figured mine was probably carrier bearing, u-joint, or tire balance issue. Never thought of the shocks causing it. Can anyone else shed any light on this.

I don’t think a bad balance on tires or bad carrier bearing or u joints would bounce, they vibrate.

I have to check on some new shocks then. I did notice yesterday on the interstate, that when I was on newer pavement, I didn't notice any bounce, but when on 'well used' pavement, it did it.
