Icon6 strange vibration while under torque/power

ok first let me say what all i messed with before the issue stared then i will explain everything!!!

alright well my lude was lowered and had been rear ended two years ago, well got tired of ruining tires and rims (so i raised it) and had to get a new exhaust due to being rear-ended(so i got exhaust and headers).

well two weeks ago i replaced, springs (to raise the car) headers and exhaust all the way, and had to replace an inner cv boot on the driver half shaft.

after doing all that i went to get it aligned the next morning on the way there something start poping, and vibrating the pedals and floor. (hmmmmm)
well couldn't figure it out so this morning i figured it had to be the axle since thats the only thing i took apart and regreased and put back together, well it's still doing it (wtf)

This only happens when you accelerate or just tap the gas while in gear and rolling but doesn't happen at low speeds, and if it is vibrating and you push in the clutch it stops so it is something on the trans/axle end of the deal


any ideas??????? please help me

sry for the long explaining post. New to this

Re: strange vibration while under torque/power

Align should fix vibration. Any weird feeling when pushing brake pedal?

I don't know what the pop could have been...

Re: strange vibration while under torque/power

well i did motor mounts about a year ago and no no vibration when on break only when accelerating, i've been messing with it today and i found it starts lightly doing it at 3500 then as it gets to 4k it gets bad and after 4500 when vtech hits it stops, car has brand new tires and rims, and an alignment, i've talked to 3 shops here in ft worth and two parts places that i get all my stuff from and they all say it has to be in the axles but it's not making any since, thanks for posting

Re: strange vibration while under torque/power

exactly as you describe it, sounds like motor mounts. but you said you did those. but it is very possible you could have busted it again...

under what conditions did the poping happen? did you hit a large pothole or curb? was it just one pop? or multiple pops all in quick succession or just randomly or was there some sort of rhythem to it. if there was a rhythem, was the tempo increasing, decreasing, or staying the same? can you feel the vibration in the steering wheel? does the vibration tempo tend to get worse with speed (wheel RPM as opposed to engine RPM) like if you accelerate using all the gears just staying with in those RPM's you describe. and does it get worse as you go through the gears? or is it dependent upon engine revs only?

i would imagine you should be able to check your axles to see if their bent by jacking the front of the car, and putting it in gear and letting the wheels spin. look at the axles and see if they don't spin true (wobble)

Re: strange vibration while under torque/power

Sounds to me like the tires aren't being rotated. An alignment won't fix tires that have bad wear on it. Also at low speeds you won't notice anything.

Re: strange vibration while under torque/power

well first off money and second it was just replaced a couple months ago and the only reason i had to buy a new one for driver is the inside boot ripped but i took it apart regreased it and put a new boot on. and thats when this started happening so i figured put a new one in its place it should stop but didn't.
