mk8 lowerd
I have a 2.2 mk8 diesel, I've recently had it lowerd 15mm with an eibach lowering kit for a type R, when I'm on motor way doing 70 and I add a small amount of pressure to accelerator I get a rumbling noise but when I take my foot off it goes away, also am I right in saying that a type R is lower than a standard one anyway so the springs I've brought aren't ideal for my 2.2 diesel? I've been to ATS and they said my drive shaft is sitting at a different angle and to stop it go back to normal springs but it's going to cost me alot to do that again, also if I change the drive shaft for a new one will I still have this problem, only happens with small pressure, if I put my foot to floor I dont feel vibrate but can still slightly hear it any advice please

The FN2 is lower than the standard to start with.
I think 10 mm so an eibach lowering kit takes a std car down by 25-30 mm.

i have heard about issues with drive shafts due to the changed angle, bound to be someone on here with more knowledge.
