Try this. Place your clip in a Premiere timeline. Right click on clip and select Replace with After Effects Composition, Now stabilize in AE and your clip is stabilized in Premiere. There will be no need to adjust position in Premiere.
This does require a suite. It's called dynamic link and it's a huge timesaver.
I thought about doing that, but I don't want to stabilize the whole 30 minute clip, just about five 20-30 second different clips within the main clip. That is a good point though, about using the dynamic link. I could cut the main clip into different sections and go stabilize them individually, but I still run into the same issue, once the clip ends, the position from the after effects clip doesn't line up with the continuation of the video in premiere. If there was some way to know the absolute position of the video in after effects after applying stabilization, I could just interpolate between them to have it match with the other clips in premiere.
You don't have to stabilize the entire clip. If you stop the tracking at one point then the clip will stay at that position until you restart the tracking. You could assign different trackers to each section you wish to stabilize, then apply each tracker to a different null, then parent the footage to null 1 (tracker 1) then null 1 to null 2 and so on to complete the shot. This would also allow you to set some position keyframes in the clip to slowly bring it back to a good starting point for the next section that you want to stabilize.
I hope you followed that. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thanks, think I got it.
