Default perplexed at tranny 2009 FX4

Hi out there
Bought me a 2009 Ranger FX4 4 liter 5 speed manual transmission a year and a half ago. Love the truck-- it is still original, I have not added any goodies.
At around 20,000 km I started to notice a funny noise in 2nd gear, took it in for Ford to check it out and was told --"normal noise" don't be concerned-brought it up at each service.-well it got louder and at 50k a highway rattle developed- this would stop when I grasped the shift knob (solid acrylic, I think) but would remain if I grasped the shift lever arm.
To make a long story short-- I went with the mechanic for a test drive, and he never heard of this. Finally it went into the shop --All 2nd and third gear were replaced and the whole tranny was checked-- they said the tranny was shimmed too tight, which wore out the 2nd and 3rd bearings.Replaced, reshimmed, spec'ed and put back together--- Guess What??? the same noise is there, but not as loud-- It was in the shop over a month waiting for parts--
Has anyone experienced this??
