Transmission Upgrades?

Ok so I am getting ready to drop the transmission pan for a fluid and filter change. I was wondering if there is anything else I should replace while I have it apart? Maybe one of the solenoids? Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.

The modified DD solenoid from PTP is a good upgrade. It made a nice difference on my truck.

I had a shift flare on the 3-4 shift. The soleniod got rid of the shift flare and now the 3-5 shift are nice and firm.

Ok so how intense is the install on the DD solenoid? Looks like something I might want to do.
