Alright, a while back I installed some cheap coilovers on my 2001 A4 1.8t FWD. Apparently something is no right because the rear suspension vibrates and after a few days I found that the shock had smashed through the "dust cap". Was there something I missed? I thightened the nut on the shock all the way down...
Go easy on me, suspension isn't my strong point. [facepalm]

Here's a couple pictures.
The "dust cap":

The rear suspension mount with shock installed and the nut on, not fully tightened down in this picture:

So, I figured it out. My coilovers are missing the washer/nut that goes on the under side of the mount to hold it in place. [headbang]
