    If you misalign any part of the shift tower, you will find that your truck will only move in one gear and will lock up in all the others and not move, so I do not think this is your problem.

    Is your tranny in a stock setup, year and engine-wise. The reason I ask is that if there is a transplant involved, you could have sheetmetal clearance issues.
