check the transmission fluid...for leakage at the radiator connection...examine the transmission mounts with a floorjack as these can create geometry problems for the linkage~ https://www.google.com/#q=96+GMC+transmission+mounts&tbm=shop

the tranny fluid level is full I could not find a leak. and the mount looked to be good
