    You will need to check the powertrain control module (PCM) for fault codes. I would suspect a slipping condition or a faulty shift control solenoid is causing the PCM to command the harsh shift.

    Have you had the wheel bearings and or speed sensors check. A relative had the same problem on a cavalier. Replaced the wheel bearing on passenger front and that hard slamming shift went away.
