Default f150 making sound like tire blown

Hello Everyone,

I have an 04 f150 just bought it a few months ago and it appears to have been taken care of previously. So to get right to the problem. I was driving down the highway this weekend going about 55 or so and slowed down to avoid someone getting off an exit and my truck started making a sound that I can only describe as a blown tire, that's what I thought had happened except that I did not loose any control of the vehicle. I slowed down and stopped on the shoulder of the road, the sound stopped, and got out. I preceded to walk around the truck, no flat tire, nothing hanging from the underside, nothing leaking, everything seemed normal. So I preceded to the next exit and got off and did a more through look a the gas station, couldn't find anything so preceded as normal. Fast forward to this morning heading to work, only going about 25 or less literally only 2 blocks from home and same sound, stop, sound goes away.

Any Idea , Suggestions would be appreciated,


I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Stick or auto?
2WD or 4x4?
Does it shake in the steering or the seat of pants?
Sounds like a tranny mount or driveshaft problem like a u-joint or CV joint.

Yup, more details would definitely help in determining the possible cause.
