my problem is i don't know what a transhumanism that doesn't advocate the use of technology to completely transcend suffering would even look like.

It wouldn't focus on transcending suffering. It would focus on creativity, imagination, desire, and expanding the realm of what's possible.

how is this focus on "expanding the realm of what's possible" still transhumanist if we're abandoning the cure for death and the mechanisation of life?

if we're not doing that, then how are we going to avoid the problems of technological growth that you and i both agree exist, and most transhumanists don't ever seem to engage with?
