1990 944 Driveline Oscillation

Transmission

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944; Year: 1990; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 27000;

My well cared for, completely stock, 2nd owner 1990 944 S2 Cabriolet w/5sp and 27k miles periodically exhibits driveline oscillation in low gear. Goes away immediately by taking in the clutch and seems to be tied to the method in which I engage the clutch (quicker drops work better - but I have read this method causes more wear and should be avoided). The oscillation seems to run the length of the car. I have read the other entries on clutch vibration, but can't convince myself I am seeing the same problem. The tranny is all original. Is this the same issue...ie, seems like the entire driveline in moving back and forth? Otherwise the tranny works fine.
