VVME HIDs Flicker on rough roads

I recently installed a VVME 35W Bi-Xenon Kit and they work perfect on smooth ground but on bumps the lights flicker, I remember when I was installing the kit the glass bulb was spring loaded, maybe this is what is causing the flickering?

I had an issue with this on my bike a few years ago. Never could really get the bulb to sit in there tight.....it finally blew a few months later.
