New to me,2000 4wd crew cab 80000 miles. Over 60 MPH on freeway,I hear a slapping sound like the thread is coming off. New goodrich tires and had them balance twice. Shocks are after market and will be replaced with biltsteins.
A tire store mechanic told me this is common with Fords with no wieght in back. Just looking for some experience input.
Thanks Tom

Tire pressures are 60 psi. On a smooth road everything is good. In the right lanes where the semi-trucks have create a uneven surface,the right rear acts like it is out of balance.
Installed new Biltstiens,still have the wheel hop.
Found Ford technical service bulletin, 02-21-11, date of issue:Oct. 28,2002.
Is anybody familar with this? I will start new thread to get more exposure.
Thanks Tom
