Default 2002 camry le - trans question

Seems when I slow to make rolling turn left or right the trans lag is long and then kind of jerks or slams (slams may be a bit harsh) when accelarating again. This is a light acceleration and it also feels like it does the same thing while on and off the accelarator in traffic.

I did have it up on jacks to look around when I first bought it about 1000 miles ago. I thought the lash in the left front axle was a bit accesive? Anyway any input would be appreciated.

To check axle CV joints. Make sharp 360 turns at low speeds. Listen for popping and clicking noises from frt axle areas.

Suggest changing trans filter and replacing all trans fluid. Don't do a "flush" or add chemicals. Just remove the old fluid and replace with new.
