my car had a noticeable vibration when accelerating from low speed or accelerating from around 60 to 80. Also noticeable when climbing a slope, rather than just cruising at a constant speed.
This all occured right after my front passenger side CV axle assembly replacement. I checked for loose bolts and even tried another set of wheels/tires to verify that it wasn't a bent wheel or unbalanced wheel.
so, caan a rebuilt CV axle assembly cause vibration? Anyone had this kind of issue?
It can - wasn't rebuilt proper, not enough grease in boot or it could be slightly out - not true

I once had a VW with similar symptoms, vibration or shudder on acceleration, esp. hard acceration. It was a bad inner CV. Take car back to shop. Not all rebuilt axles are equal, some can be basic clean-up jobs (cleaned, painted, tested). Was this an audi OEM rebuilt axle?
