what you can do is somthing very dangeraus mind you but it can work put you truck on stands and then have someone hit fiftyfive on it while its on the stands and have someone else under the car or under the hood to look to see if there could be a rattle form a shield or maybe it could be somthing totaly diff that just went out while you where driving it like mine did somthing the same after passing 55 or so it would start to shack and shit and then it would start to rattle and mine was a heat sheild hitting the finder wall really hard but try it out and see what happens josh
