Dana 300 slips slowly out of gear, help

Took my Dana 300 out to fix some leaks and when I got it back in and drove the jeep the thing slowly moves from 2h to neutral and starts to make a weird noise when engaging the clutch in first. If I come to a stop and pull it down it resets to 2h. When I took it out, the plastics around the bolt that holds the shifter in place came apart and the bolt is loosely in the two holes. Do I need new springs or a sheath around the bolt to make it more tight? Thanks in advance!!

Yes, you need the two plastic sleeve bushings

and I would also see if some one before was in the case.

There are also poppet balls that match notches on the shift rails. These help keep the forks in place (holding it in gear).I would see if one is missing, jammed, or loose in its hole.
Number 5 in this diagram.

Thanks! I have been looking for that for a while. It's will fix it because it was fine until the plastic came out.
