    I installed new body mounts a couple of weeks ago. Bent the shift linkage jacking up the body. I took it of and straightened it back. But since then I've adjusted it several times. Either you can easily get it to go into park and no low range select or you can have it drop down to low range but it's hard to get to get in park and the stops aren't right. (Ya haveta pull back to get it into neutral which isn't normal)

    Shift linkage needs lengthened. Even if it appears it doesn't need to be by eyeballing it. Usually by a welded in section of metal rod. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
