camshaft actuator/solenoid?

I had posted before about the codes that my car was putting out(p10010 and p10011) and been searching what could be the fix. I'm confused on what to replace in the car because on some threads people start talking about the camshaft position sensor then switch off to intake and exhaust solenoids. Should i replace the camshaft position sensor or the intake/exhaust solenoids? The cars symptoms are that the traction control light turns on and the car starts doing hard shifts. Its really annoying and im not sure what part it would most likely be. Any help with deciding would be appreciated.

That is the solenoids. Do both of them at the same time. The same thing happened to our HHR.

They are pretty much a dealer item around where I live. The only place I could find them was on gmpartsdirect. I didn't look too hard though.
