I would recommend jacking up your car and checking for play in the ball joints
and tie rod ends by wiggling the wheels back and forth, and that would solve that
Then, it could be that you damaged your CV's, or knocked your alignment off in
some odd way. Maybe you lost a wheelweight and your tires need to be rebalanced?
Just throwing out ideas...

'84 GTi (needs fuel pump)
'86 Scirocco 8v (broken frame)
'87 QSW (daily driver)
