Re: 1999 F250 super duty Front end bouncing when you hit...
i havent seen any hub problems that would cause this problem
what i would do is remove your shocks and test them you maybe getting poor quality shocks.
and keep a close eye on your tire pressure.
are you getting abnormal tire wear?

Tie rod ends, controll arm bushings, ball joints, shocks, Springs, torsion bar, tires, rim, Worped rotors. It could be a number of things. Usally, that particular problem sounds like a tie rod end or shock.
I'd be inclined to check the suspension. Jack vehicle up so wheels hang free & check the mountings, springs/shock absorbers, & sway bar. Also 'bounce' the vehicle at each corner in case a shockie has internal problems,
Have you looked at your anti lock braking system. It will give a pulsation when it is in use. You may have a problem with it and it is coming on prematurely. Listen when your truck is doing this and you should hear the humming of the antilock system if it is on. Otherwise i would ckeck your ball joints and tie rod ends for wear as this can cause a vibration back thru your braking system as well
You probably have a loose front end. Check your tie rods and ball joints, also your wheel bearings and shocks. Shocks play a major part in how the front end handles on a rough road, as do worn out springs. If you determine something is loose in the front end, fix it immediately! I always consider front end problems to be safety issues.
Shocks are usually pretty much shot after 45-50K. Also check damper (sideways shock on steering linkage). Shake is either wheel balance or a worn steering component (should have been checked before alignment...shame on them if they didn't)
