For all you pics whore who clicked this I'll follow through with them tomorrow.

Well anyways, installed Vmax coilovers as long as a snub mount. I noticed that it would vibrate alot, under heavy acleration it was bad, however taking some covers either side was just as bad.
I took all the wheel off and made sure that they were mounted properly.

What could be the issue?

Does it vibrate at idle? If so the snub may be misaligned or could need lubing up.

Loosen the snub mount housing and let the car idle for a few minutes - then tighten it back up.

The car does not vibrate at idle, either does it vibrate until you get over 40 mph or so, or cornering at 40 plus.

pullacowonaski, if you can change your oil, rotate tires, do minor engine work, and take off your front bumper, than a snub mount is cake ;) there is a few writeups for it, wont take longer than an hour or 2.

and SeekB00st, were all your suspension components, bushings and joints in good condition (and torqued/installed properly)? I would say get a on-machine alignment from a audi-specialized shop whom knows the alignment specs for a lowered car. toe-in/out can cause the vibration. when were your tires last balanced?

No clue when they were last balanced, however i've been on a lowered cup kit forever, and its not vibraiton, its as if the sway bar end links are lose. Some shit.

the linkage bushings could have gotten damaged? inspect them and see what the dealio is.
