rough shifting after having the slave cylinder replaced

i had my slave cylinder replaced today and after i picked it up from the shop it shifted very smooth, now it is giving me trouble going into gear, and the clutch pedal feels stiff and has a little less travel, any idea why?

I am not 100% on this but on the bigger trucks there is an adjustment on the clutch pedal. Where the master cylinder clips on the armature. You can unbolt the armature and move it as its keyed. What seems to be happening is the clutch isnt fully disengaging and its making it tough to go into gear

I could be wrong about this armature but all my fords have them

There is no adjustment on the Ranger clutch system.
Sounds more like the clutch needs to be re-bled.

did you check your fluid level, after yu drove it a little the level might of gone down a little, or leaked out of the bleed screw if they didn't tighten it enough,
