Help Wobble from Eibach spacers

Hey guys I just put on 25mm spacers on my rear wheels and I'm noticing some vibrations at 90+mph, is this normal or is something wrong? Thanks everyone

Yes, vibrations are completely normal.

For real... Are they the 2-piece 25mm ones? If they are, check that they are properly torqued.

Did you clean the hub before installing them?

You should clean the hub too since even a tiny bit of rust can prevent the spacer from sitting 100% flat against the hub. A metal brush should do the job. 100+mph?

Another great idea, I would have been nice if the spacers came with instructions that told me these things.... For now almost all the vibrations have gone away, if I notice any more I will definately clean the hub. Love the smiley face hahah, im sure im not the only one to put the pedal to the metal
