Default Trans Band Adjustment Problems

Hi all, I have a 97 GC with the 42re. It shifted perfectly when I purchased it a few months ago, but it does have 173k miles. I changed the fluid and figured it could use a band adjustment while I was at it. I saw a video on youtube recommending 3 backout turns after torquing to 72 in/lbs. The trans started shifting funny after about 1,000 miles. I decided to check the spec in the FSM and it states 4 backout turns. I readjusted today and now it barely wants to grab the gear and clunks. What should I try readjusting to next? Is the trans toast? Thanks all!
