I can never remember all of the specifics, but a '95 4L60E seems to be it's own animal -- not readily swappable with other 4L60E's. The differences are in the valve body and in the electronic controls. It might be possible to coax other 4L60E's into a '95, but will not be "plug and play" easy if it's doable at all.
These guys seem to have a knowledge of the differences http://www.valvebodybuilders.com/gm_4l60e1995only.html in the valve bodies.
Good luck getting your '95 back on the road.'98 K1500 Suburban LS 5.7 L 4L60E NV246 ARB

95 is the cross year for obd1 to obd2 changeover, the main difference is the pre 94 has no tcc pwm as it was vacuum modulated, 95 1/2 and up is controlled electronically by the tcc pwm solenoid. I did this changeover in my Firebird last year, the wiring harness is only 12 wires in your 95 harness and in the 98 it would be 13 wires. The 13th wire is brown and is ground wire for the torque converter aka tcc pwm (torque converter control pulse width modulation)
You would have to add the 13th wire in the valve body harness, and then all the way up to the ecm and pin it into the ecm connector. I'm sure someone will tell me I'm wrong, but there is what worked for me as I drive the car everyday...
