    hard to engage gears?

    like title says yesterday morning i started to have problem getting into any gear even reverse.. this all happens at a stop or slow speeds. once in a gear and going its fine.. cant hear any grinding. i have to use excessive force to get into gear.. i currently have 01 slave w/ ls6 clutch with approx. 50k.. what can be my problems?

    This sounds like the clutch is dragging . This will quickly wear the synchronizers so locate/ fix the problem before driving it too much.
