On level ground and at low RPM it will shift smoothly but with normal acceleration it is a hard shift. All other shifts OK . Any ideas ?

    The kick down cable is a big problem with these, but it can be something else too. It's hard to say without driving the vehicle. Start by having the cable checked, as well as the transmission fluid level and condition.
