Shifting with 5spd... Synchros?

Having issues with t-case, in other thread, but this may or may not be related. When shifting my trans usually 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 doesn't shift right. It doesn't grind like missed shifts but it does kinda growl and doesn't drop in quickly. There is NO way to speed shift it either. Fluid is topped off and everything is right... Any help?

Since it does it in most gears I would consider an issue with the clutch release. Slave and Master cylinders can go...is the fluid level ok in the clutch master cylinder underhood?

Yes it stays full, no drips. I know if you wiggle the stick it goes in easier and faster. Just feels like the plate for the gear locations is moved a little, like synchros.

Like bent end of shifter...there isn't a whole lot of parts to fail. Look through a schematic and let me know what you think your feeling.
