Strong noises coming from transmission when slowing down

I have a 2007 Trailblazer with 120k KM. I have it always in "auto" and today when I slowed down to make a hard left I felt a strong noise below the truck at the back and another at the front, like if the truck rolls over 2 stones and looses power and stability.

It looks like when the truck changes gears in "auto" when you reach a hard curve, it is not able to properly synchronize and loud noises come from below the truck. Like if gears or cogs are not assembled or not synchronized.

I changed to 2h and the truck goes fine. It only happens in "auto". I did not try 4H because I think something similar may happen and I don't want to make more damage to the car.

Any idea what is happening?

Thnaks a lot for your comments.

    Sounds like the transmission TCM thinks there is wheel slippage when there actually isn't, putting the car into AWD on dry pavement, which will cause binding in the differentials. I would definitely stay in 2H until you can figure this out. Maybe a scan of the TCM will reveal something, like a bad sensor.
