I started noticing a rough ride about 5-10K miles before I had time to address the issue. I thought possibly it might be a balance issue. The rear tires had an usual wear pattern. Shocks were the most likely cause. New rear tires and shocks made it drive like a new vehicle again.

What was the wear pattern ?

 

It would have been interesting to me to examine the used shocks.  Were they equally weak ?

What it looked like was that my tires were bouncing.  Good areas followed by heavy wear.  The more I thought about it, it made perfect sense.  That is exactly how it felt. 

 

You don't notice it until it gets bad because everything changes gradually over time.
