yeah i had the same issue. then i replaced the blockers and the synchros. it did fix the "hard to downshift". might be some thing to do with the master cylinder if your down shifting and trying to get the RPMs way up tho. i had orginally replaced my master and slave thinking it was a pressure problem, but it did not fix "the hard to get into gear". replacing the synchros and blocker rings was fairly cheap and did fix my trans problem.
