Unhappy Shift stick has extensive lateral movement

Hi, the shift stick of my manual transmission has an unusual wide lateral range and I am wondering what causes it and how to fix it.

Are you sure that's not normal? it's a truck, not a sportscar

You didn't mention a year or trans model, but if its 88 up, they make a kit to fix it with, simple job too.

Sorry, 1995. I will look for the kit.

I assume this kit: http://www.partsgeek.com/gbproducts/...ad=47362750812

Sorry, I had to say that... A lot of people complain about the amount of movement, but if it got worse, that is understandable
