Installer chalked all that up to a weak factory driveshaft and the way the gears are made. It hasn't been a real big issue anymore tbh
If you have a manual transmission then the deceleration vibration is normal and due to the dual mass flywheel.

If not then it could be the gear or a driveshaft issue like the companion flange did not get fully seated when the driveshaft was bolted back up.

As to what to look for, the noise and a bad wear pattern on the gear teeth.

Have you asked your gear installer about it yet?
