Shifter Linkage Re-alignment

Dont know if its just me but I find my car to go through gears pretty roughly. Second, fourth and fifth are a pain in the ass sometimes because they sort of "crunch into gear" you can say. Im getting the gear oil changed today so maybe that will make a difference but i doubt it. Do you guys think a linkage realignment will help or is this a tranny problem? how much am I looking at spending roughly for a realignment?

Sounds like a bad synchro to me. There is no realignment for the linkage. You can replace the bushings and cup and stuff to make it feel more solid. It might improve the feel, but it won't help the cruch ... that internal.
