Normal E4od Downshift?

When I bought my 97 f-250 I had to have the trans rebuilt almost immediatley and did not have time to get familiar with the shifts. It was rebuilt and had a Transgo shift kit installed. I noticed that it downshifts hard from 4th to 3rd at about 35mph. If I let of the accelerator completley it isn't bad but if I am barley on it it is very rough. I called the shop and they told me it was normal with the E40d's and it make be the TC unlocking. Does anyone elses do this, is it normal for these trucks? I since installed a 6.0 trans cooler and trans temp gauge and haven't seem temps much over 145 with normal unweighted driving if that matters.
