quick question: Clunk on acceleration from a stop, and vibration on acceleration

So my GTI has (within the last week) started to have a vibration under acceleration, almost like the exhaust is hitting the firewall... and under certain circumstances, there is a clunk when I take off...

Would this be an indication of the dogbone insert finally breaking down? Or should I look at something else if I can get the car in the air this weekend?

Thanks!

How many miles, exhaust mods, and is it a DSG?

Isn't that traction control?

Still too cold to crawl under, but here are some specs:
6spd manual
3" downpipe, hi flow cat
72000 miles
Not traction control
the vibration is felt throughout the shifter and pedals

Got an aftermarket intake? Vibrations in the pedals make me thing it could be the intake resting on the brake line, but I don't know why the shifter would be vibrating too. I'm not too confident that's what your issue is, but if you don't have the stock airbox it's worth checking out.

This is true. Had this issue with my APR intake.
