Default my description of decel noise

I'm not sure if my decel noise is the same as you guys. When I drop below 3k rpm in 3rd, there's a noticeable stutter of the car--the car itself jerks a little. But I always thought that was just an indicator of turbo lag/turbo dis-engagement. There's no "grinding" or metallic sound I can hear, just jerkiness in decel. I wouldn't call it super-jerky, it's more like someone slightly shook you by your shoulders to wake you up, that kind of movement. Do you guys think this is the same kind of decel noise that warrants a replaced clutch assy? Do you think it's enough of a justification that there's a redesigned part and I want it in my car, without reference to a severe jerkiness problem?
