In case this helps, I bought some CV axles once for my A2, and without 
checking the length of them (why would you)I installed them.  Turned out the one 
side was the wrong length (too long).  It made a funny vibration noise (because 
when it bottomed out it was a solid connection from the engine/trans to the 
suspension/body), sounded like you had solid engine mounts.  Anyway, because of 
how long it was it destroyed the drive flange seal.  So it is possibly the axle 
hitting and destroying the seal.  Good luck, Doug.
