Gas Pedal Question

Lately I've noticed a lot of vibration and feedback in my gas pedal. Mainly when going over very small bumps, changes in road surface,impressions, etc. Things that you'd think should barely affect the suspension; which I know mine could use some upgrades. I also have a lag in acceleration after initial pressure on the pedal. My gas pedal has a decent wiggle when moved side to side. Should the pedal be tight and is there a way to tighten it? Or is there something that is worn and probably needs replacement? I know there is the button for the pedal position and I don't want to screw up anything with that. Can anyone relate/help?

Re: Gas Pedal Question

There are two studs that the pedal is attached to. I would make sure the nut on each one is tight. It might be as simple as that. I haven't looked at my pedal, but here's a diagram:

For the adjustable pedal I think there are 3 studs.
