Question 126 - harsh shifts

My '87 300 SDL is experiencing rough shifts. The shifting is not so bad when accelerating hard, but light to mid acceleration is what causes the harsher shifting. I realize "feeling" the shift points in these cars is largely considered a feature. I do not mean harsh like good, this seems somewhat like a clunk. Additionally, the shifts appear to be more harsh when the AC is on.
