Uneven small bounces while driving

Hard to really put this into words but I'll try

I am not sure if its my suspension that has a problem or the acceleration that is making the car jerk/bounce slightly.

Whilst driving along I can feel the smallest of jerks coming from my car, as if it is a bit too springy if you get my meaning. It is only very slight and you can feel it more when in a lower gear like 2nd or 3rd.

A good way to describe it would be the feeling that when you are in too high a gear and the speed is not high enough, that jerky feeling but not as much.

The car also seems to jerk a bit when I am changing up a gear which is pretty annoying, only noticed this in the past week after having the car for 3 months now.

So it could maybe be:

Acceleration problem
Clutch? (that started making a clicking noise about 2 weeks ago)

Thanks in advance for any help.

Might be you are now noticing the iVtec system changing over from one profile to another. Slight hesitation without loss of speed! If you drive it hard with lots of revs do you notice nothing, if so its more than likely the iVtec.
