What do you mean by “rough engagement”? Does it mean a clunk somewhere between the tranny and the rear? and/or difficulty in engaging the selected gear?

Does not sound like a transmission problem to me. Again without seeing the car if I have to guess I'll be looking somewhere else. This jerking has to do with mounts/universal joints/center bearing driveshaft etc. A very common weak link on these cars is the flexible coupler AKA Guibo causing other symptoms like vibration on take offs etc.
BTW Does this zippy name comes from a different language? If so don't tell me...LOL
