if your input is
gtfix31/gctunit_gtdivcompebb1/csclkswcompbypassstepgnnnh= csclkswcompbypassstepgnnnh

Code:
echo "gtfix31/gctunit_gtdivcompebb1/csclkswcompbypassstepgnnnh= csclkswcompbypassstepgnnnh"|sed 's/\(.*\)\(=\)\(.*\)/\1\2gctunit1\/gtdivcompebb1\/\3/g'

output will be

gtfix31/gctunit_gtdivcompebb1/csclkswcompbypassstepgnnnh[4] = gctunit1/gtdivcompebb1/csclkswcompbypassstepgnnnh
