    How's the air pressure in your tires, My sister in law put the maximum PSI in her truck tires ( 80 lbs ) because it showed 80 psi max on the sidewall of the tire, with 80 psi the truck rode terrible, I reduced the pressure to what the door jamb said was the proper tire inflation and suddenly the truck rode smooth, I explained to her that 80 psi is for max load and since she drives her pickup empty she dosn't need 80psi, try inflating your tires at what the manufacturer recommends as stated on your doorjamb or owners manual.
