This link is part of one of the best DIYs I've seen on replacing the sleeve and it states neutral or park for the top off. Perhaps I should have had mine in one of those positions instead of D? That might account for a possible over filling?

One other key point from that same post: "If anyone is having troubles with rough shifting or a "bump" between gears, it is LIKELY the seal adapter which sits on top of the mechatronics and seals a port between the body of the tranny and mechatronics."

Perhaps my O rings on the sleeve were a little too dry after being installed and they hadn't fully sealed until the fluid circulated for a period of time? I'll know more by the end of the week, hopefully.
