Wierd shifting question????

I will try to explain as best i can. It just seems that when I shift into 2nd, 3rd, and 4th that there is not a nice smooth feeling, sorta like a little click or a mild mild grind feel just for a split second. I don't remember it before the 2"bb and 1" body lift plus a tc drop. I have adjusted my shifter so that works perfectly with the tc drop, also it doesn't happen every shift. So is this just normal or does something need to be adjusted. Any help would be great, I just want to make sure that I didn't screew something up.
Thanks

kinda normal on an older transmission. If you haven't changed your tranny fluid in a while, some fresh fluid may solve it.

1" Rubi Spring lift (yes it does boost an SE 1", ask me how I know)

you can eliminate gear syncros by double clutching.


When you shift from 1st to 2nd just let the clutch out then press it in again to go into 2nd gear. If you don't grind then it is your syncros.

I have just bought a brand new jeep ( I haven't lifted it or anything) and I have a similar problem. Not so much a grinding though. Every time I shift up to 2nd, 3rd or 4th there seems to be a split second hesitation and a slight noise. I have tried varying my clutch/throttle usage and can get it to shift smooth but not often. I have noticed the clutch engagement is quite different compared to my brothers 2002. There are a few posts here describing similar problems and when my brother drove my jeep it was very obvious to him. I called the dealer and they said drive it a little longer and let the tranny break in some more. I don't know yet but I've got a feeling there will be a T.S.B for this within the year. Good luck. If ya find out what it is, lemme know. I actually have a post asking about this.

That is exactly how it feels! Not really a grind but a hesitation and not perfectly smooth.
