    My truck had this weird, hopping, shaking thing when I bought it in Nov. Around 60 or 65, the back end would bounce a little and then shake/rattle for a few minutes and stop. Then it would bounce again and the shaking would start again. I don't know if this is the same as what you're talking about, but after I replaced my rear bearings and tightened down my u-bolts (which were very loose), the shaking is gone. So it could be something encompassed in your axle swap (like different bearings, tighter u-bolts, etc).
