Shifting after NSS

I just changed out my neutral safety switch on my 97 Cherokee automatic. Prior to changing it out, it was a lot easier to go from park to neutral, to drive, etc. did I do something wrong? Or is it normal for the shifting to be a little tighter?

I'd say it's not normal to notice any shifter drag from the little NSS riding on the tranny side shaft.
Loosening the NSS adjustment bolt would allow it to move with the shaft some for testing or verification of where the drag is coming from. I'd probably inspect and lube the shifter linkages while I was at it.
