trans slams from 1st to 2nd when coasting downhill (only)

I do alot of local driving on steep hills (delivery). When accelerating downhill (foot off the gas...coasting), my 1996 Taurus AND my 2001 Taurus BOTH shift late, and hard into 2nd gear. (Again, only when coasting.) If I accelerate (using gas pedal) down the hill....shifts fine. Sometimes the slam into 2nd is brutal. Thoughts?
