Vw passat b5 1.9tdi 5sp manual

While investigating my all over vibration whilst accelerating which I had down as oil on the clutch as my rear oil seal is leaking I found that one of my driveshafts were shot and an engine mount leaking.
Great it's not the clutch it something easier.

So I got 2 new driveshafts, 2 engine mounts and 2 gearbox mounts all from Autodoc and all made by Ridex. I installed them yesterday with not much problem, ran the engine to settle them before tightening everything back up, great I thought this is gonna be like a new car.

No, not great, I now have a much worse vibration than before at tickover throughout the whole car it never vibrated before on tickover just when driving, and it only slightly gets better if I rev or drive it but its still there. The vibration under load has gone from the driveshaft so that's something I suppose.

I've messed with the snub mount,(it's a v6 one fitted 3 years ago) had it cental not touching anything and pressed it up and down makes no difference at all.

Timing, injectors all good.
It can only be the mounts as nothing else has changed

Is there something I'm missing here im at a loss, any help appreciated.
Cheers

Vibrating at idle points to too stiff of engine mounts, or possibly misaligned engine causing it to bind on the dogbone mount. I would check engine alignment and the dogbone mount to ensure they're correct.

So I've reset all the mounts again just to make sure.

The vibration goes away all the time it's on jack stands, as soon as its lowered back down the vibration comes back but more from the steering wheel now.

It is worse at idle but is there throughout the rev range

All of the suspension components have been replaced this year.

I've been underneath with it running and the only thing vibrating is the exhaust and that's not touching anything.

Anyone got any ideas of what is happening, it is driving me mad.
