This is what I would do, or you could make sure you engage and disengage the parking brake when the drivetrain isn't under pressure from sitting on the hill. When I had an auto and was parking on a hill I would always put the car in neutral, let it roll a smidgeon and stop it with the brake pedal, then apply the parking break and put the trans in park. When leaving I would put the car in neutral again and ensure that I was holding the car with the brake pedal, and then release the parking brake and put it in reverse. This is probably overkill, but I didn't care for that loud thunking myself!

PS - I see this is your first post, welcome to the forums!
As a quick aside, this is the '10-14 secion and your avatar is showing an 05-09 S197. If you have tech questions, they might be able to help you in the 05-09 section better than here. Most of us are 5.0 owners and I think the 4.6 2010 guys post their tech stuff in the 05-09 forum since the 05-09 and 10 are mechanically identical.
