Hard Shifting after starter replacement

After replacing my KJ's starter this past weekend the transmission has begun shifting hard.

Not sure what could be causing this and if it is at all related to the starter replacement.

I did have to remove the forward drive shaft coming from the trans to the front transfer case to remove the starter.

Maybe I didn't quit get it back in snuggly and it's clunking at shifts?

Trans fluid level is fine

Thoughts?

While removing the forward drive shaft I knocked loose the front trans speed sensor.

If your trans is downshifting hard check both the speed sensors. They are the driverside of the trans.
