Exclamation 5 speed-Extremely hard to shift

any help would be great. here is the problem. I have a 95 f250 4x4 5 speed. The clutch pedal goes almost all the way to the floor before it engages and when it is pushed in it is very hard to change gears. Downshifting is haredr than upshifting but it is rough to do either. it almost seems like the clutch isn't engaging the whole way. it just started happening last week. had it to a shop and they said the slave cylinder might be bad but who knows. any help would be great thanks alot.

disengaging. i had to replace the bushing on my pedal. i noticed it was a weak link when i did my carpet and insulation.

the bushing wears and kicks the rod out a angle which reduces the throw of the rod. releasr bearing is not being fully depressed.

mine had the same problem and it turned out to be the plastic piece on the end of the rod that pushes on the shift fork.
