Auto trans issue

Since I bought the car 2 years ago, the shifting has been pretty rough. It's just lasted so long that I figured it isn't a big problem. The biggest lurches (as I would describe it) happen when I'm getting on the highway and I hit it. The car will rise up from acceleration then slam into gear as I reach around 60-70 mph. Pretty much at any speed it will shift very hard like that if I accelerate quickly. It will do it just for that first shift after accelerating then it isn't as bad.

I've had someone (not a mechanic) tell me it might be trans fluid, because that's what his car needed when it acted the way mine does.

Figured this would be the best place for me to ask before bringing it to a shop. If it can really be just the trans fluid that would be great news for me. If I need to replace the gears I might as well get 4.10's also.
