Default shudder when taking off...

i dont know where this is coming from.. if its suspension or drivetrain, i dont know but it happens when i take off from a dead stop.from maybe 5 to 10 ish miles an hour the truck shudders or shakes a little and thought it was a bushing of something somewhere? any thoughts?

It sure could. Pop in a new one and let us know if that cures it.
