zuvarak is on a distinguished road
Mine's doing the same stuff. When changing gears on the spot back and forth, I can feel the car moving a little. One shop told me that it's probably something to do with the transfer case. I know from history that at some point this car received a used (refurbished) transfer case.
I also get the 2 - 1 jerk sometimes.. I noticed it's felt much more once the car reaches normal operating temperature.
I'm currently at 352k KM and I scheduled it's first gearbox service (oil + seals)..hopefully it doesn't die on me after that. Although I was told that if the shop finds out that the gearbox is already too worn, they'll abort the scheduled maintenance..

Not sure if anyone has fitted this spacer to an LCI - it may not fit due to the longer shaft from the factory.

The transfer case is different too (NV125 vs ATC500) - the output spline drive on the LCI's ATC500 may be a different depth from the older (prone to failure) NV125.
