The hard shifting or clunk is on a different TSB. 355 is for the shuddering.

I had the 8L45, too, and it did exhibit a perceptible clunk on the 3->1 shift, but only on an incline, almost never on a flat road.

The same downshift is buttery smooth on the 8L90 I run now, which makes me think this is likely a tune issue, as the lurchy downshifts in my previous trans weren't at any significant power. (My trans is tuned, but this was just the same when stock.)

18-NA-355 is for a completely different problem, so this TSB won't help you. I would ask the dealership to put the trans into relearn mode and see if it goes away and comes back again, which would point even stronger to a tune issue.

Repeated flushing with the old fluid on my 2016 2SS in January @32k miles lasted about 10 months @45k miles. In October, the 1st flush of the new fluid failed and the shudder came back much worse.

The dealer flushed it a 2nd time with the new fluid and the problem is improved. At this time, I don't think the problem is completely resolved as it feels like there is a slight underlying vibration/wobble at highway speeds.
