200-4r transmission shifting questions

I recently bought a 200r4 transmission from a shop in the Tampa area that was advertising on Ebay. The trans was slated as a "Stage 1" and built to handle up to a 500 hp engine, far more than I have. My problem is that after many minute changes in the TV cable to alleviate a horrible downshift clunk from 3rd to 2nd, I'm at a loss as what my problem is. I womder if the shiftkit and valve body used in this build is too aggressive for my use. The overall 4th gear ratio of .67 is great for going to non local cruse night and car show, but I fear that the shifting anomolies are going to trash this gearbox prematurely. Any suggestions? Sorry for the lengthy disertation.

If it has a Superior Super Servo that's where your 3-2 downshift clunk is coming from. The Super Servo isn't machined to use the stock Intermediate Servo Cushion Spring. Change the Servo or have it machined is only fix.
