I have an m6 t/a and im starting to have a little trouble with the stick. When i put it into any of the lower gears(mostly 1-4th) the stick is really loose, shakes and makes a rattling noise when accelerating. Slipping clutch?
It might be from hard driving, which I try not to do, but the torque is like an addiction
If anybody can give me any important info id appreciate it.

Maybe the shifter has slop in it? What's the mileage?

Slipping clutch isn't going to make your stick sloppy. (that sounds just wrong).
Check to make sure your stick is firmly bolted to the shifter itself. Should be 2 bolts holding it onto the shifter. When I replaced my stock shifter, I found that there was only 1 bolt holding the stick onto the shifter.
Not sure what you mean by it being only sloppy in the lower gears. It's firm in 5th & 6th? If so, then it sounds like your shifter forks for 1-2 and 3-4 are worn out. This will happen if you keep your hand pressing against the forks while your driving. Hands off the shifter until you are ready to shift. Trans rebuild time.
