Comes down to a lot of things, suspension, bushes, size of your wheels, harmonics. I've had new bushes, new suspension, rebound plates, added extra clamps to stiffen up the leaves and still had axel tramp issues which has most likely been caused by 19's with low profile tyres.

also check your tyre pressure, if its too high it can also cause tramping

diff pinion angle,if your bushes are worn and it changes your pinion angle this will happen more so if its lowered.
