Did you disassemble this cassette down to the loose cogs & spacers?
IF you did, I'd check for-
Debris caught between cogs & spacers
The spacers have some 'extrusions" on them from being compressed and not allowing the cogs to fit quite as closely together as they should.
This would have a cumulative effect, with each progressively smaller cog getting further out of place.
IF so, take a file and knock of the high spots.

I'd also look for a loose lock ring.
