I bet you have a bad shock absorber.The shocks job is to control exactly what you describe.

Knocking sound under floor board while driving


Hi,
Check your tires for uneven wear. Sounds like they are out of balance and causing the shock or other suspension part to bounce/bump the under side of the car.

My 1997 expedition, shakes really bad when i hit 35 miles per hour. when i first got it it shook at 60 miles per hour now at 35. i dont know whats wrong


Take a close look at the tires, look for bulges and lumps. You may have a slipped belt. Where the rubber delaminates from the reinforcment belt embedded in the tire. If this is the case, you must replace the tire. Also look for missing balance weights. Around the rim you should be able to tell if a weight fell off.
Another very serious possibility is a failed shock absorber. A very rough test is to manually push / bounce one corner of truck down a few times then let go and see if it keeps bouncing more than one time, one and half max. Check all 4 corners.
Otherwise, possible bent rim, missing lug nuts, bad wheel bearing.
Good luck

When driving 35 mph + the front end seems to bump it feels like going over a bump in the road i dont think its the transmission because it does not happen when shifting it happens more when driving up hill...


Could be a tire out of round, or even a bad strut. Bounce the front end, if it's spring like, the strut (s) may be bad. Look for leaking of oil from them, that is a sign of a bad strut.

There is a wobble at about 35 miles an hour but drives out at about 40 miles per hour


Most low speed wobbles are caused by a tire becoming out of round as it wears down the tread. Probably a front tire. Jack the tire just till it is off the ground and turn the tire looking at the clearance of the tire above the ground. Notice how much it changes as you go around. Try this with each tire to find the problem.

Tread separation will also cause this. The above procedure will also work for this.

Right front tire


the next thing is to have the tire checked for a hop in it,meaning its not straight and round, start there.

Vehicle hakes when driving 45 to 50 miles per hour


Check wheel balance,
check steering linkages for loosness - such as tie rod ends, steering rack linkages etc,
check driveline for worn/loose joints and bearings.

After rotating tires on 07 GMC2500 HD, truck bumps & bounces


It has to do with true round or weight. either the rim is out of round or is damaged for some reason. Or maybe the rotors are not balanced. Sometimes wedge style weights are used and they fall off. Good luck.
