Re: shifting hard
when shifting from park or rev to drive if it thunks it's most likely the front diff isolator bushings. there are 2 pressed in (top and pass side #14) and 1 that bolts on the diff cover(#6). the pressed ones are notorious for going bad.

Re: shifting hard
that slaming its your lower diff moving. rip your ebrake that have someone shift it from park to drive and so forth your diff should be moving about a 3 or so inches as soon as power is applied i paid like 400 bucks to get mine fixed

Mine does the same thing. So it's a Baring in the diff? I don't understand...
