Solenoid Pack needs replacement?

(2002 Ford Explorer)
in Deerfield Beach, FL on February 14, 2011
When in P and putting car in reverse, the transmission does at first not change gears until you hit the gas. At that point, there is a hard shift in gear, rather than gears switching smoothly. No problems observed during regular driving. Switch from P to R is the only issue.

Ford dealer diagnosed that the Solenoid Pack needs to be replaced to the tune of US$920. Does this make sense? Truck has 90k miles.

There has been some issues relating to engagement concerns due to shift solenoid failures. This price seems a bit on the high side. Call some competitors and compare some prices.
