Ive noticed this happen a couple times in the past few weeks. Ill be driving along just fine, usually at highway speeds (55-65). Ill start to feel a vibration but its not in the steering wheel. It will slowly become more pronounced, and you'll even start to see the side view mirrors vibrating with it.

Ive tried slowing down to as low a speed as safely possible (40mph or so while on the highway) but that doesnt make it go away. If I take an exit and get the speed way down (usually there is a stop involved so Im not sure if its actually 0mph or something like 10-20mph) then start back on the highway, the vibration goes away and stays away.

Truck is an 01 with 83K miles on it. Tires are inflated correctly but have not been checked for balance. I will be checking u-joints for play this weekend. Upper and lower ball joints were replaced at around 70K miles.

Any other suggestions to look at?

Thanks

Usually when you feel vibration in the seat, it's not a steering front end issue, like steering components or front suspension. Rather, it is usually due to something in the driveline or bad rear tires. Things to check would be driveshaft U-joints, bad rear tires, possible bad diff or axle bearings.
