    98 6 speed grinds in 4th

    I autocross and drag race a bit. My Z28 just began grinding sometimes going into 4th from 1st. The other gears so far are fine.

    Could this be an issue with the Chevy shifter?

    If I need a rebuild, would it be better to get a new 6 speed? Where would I get a new 6 speed? Is a rebuild the beginning of the end?

    I see your new so perhaps slack is due, but a search would have told you that this is a common / known problem with the original aluminum 3/4 shift fork. You will need to install a replacement iron part to solve the problem.
