rear axle hop

I have a 57 transtar pickup it has the original suspension with all new bushings and shocks it has 3 inch lowering blocks on the rear axle. The problem when Im driving it shakes bad at 45 mph any other speed its fine.I dont have the rear bed of the truck on yet so I can look right at the axle hopping around. Any help folks thanks BBB.

transtar

Bob,

Is that a Transtar as in Studebaker?

Seems like a good starting point would be to measure pinion angle and transmission output shaft angle.

Those centerlines should be parallel within a degree or two.
