the ground strap is bolted to the transmission housing next to the starter bolt.the transmission not shifting may be caused by the computer and may need to be reprogrammed for the new transmission.

It is less important where, exactly, they get located, find similar sized bolts, somewhere.
What is important is to Guarantee good connection between Battery, engine, and body/frame. Grounds that are poor cause power to have to go through other stuff, like cables, etc. Grounds are the most difficult to diagnose. Just make sure you ground everything to everything.
In marine, and often Mercedes a dedicated ground is run to everything. Grounding is common problem with trailers. I run ground to everything...Life just works then.
