Pros and cons of what? Sounds like you need some trans diagnosis. Best to have a reputable shop look it over for you instead of guessing. Based on that you said you had vibrations, I am willing to bet that the transmission mount or motor mounts have broken or failed causing your banging and hard shifting. If it is the Torque convertor that is worn, other parts in the transmission are worn as well. Most if not all shops will rebuild the transmission as they won't warranty it with replacing one part. You can also try a trans fluid change first, as that is much cheaper and might help your shifting. But there is no guarantee that will help. I'd have the mounts looked at first, then the fluid change, then a rebuild last.
