Clutch disengagement

Alright, clutch on my truck will not completely disengage. When I come to a stop light, I can feel a load on the transmission. Also, it's a pain to get it in Low, Reverse, or 1st! So yesterday I went to ford and bought a new hydraulic system... both slave cylinders and reservoir. After installation the new system was worst than the old system! The only improvement being clutch pedal feel. So, after bleeding the system I'm now back to square one. I can still feel a slight load on the transmission and it's a pain to get in Low and Reverse. Any Idea's as to what would cause this?

btw it's a early 99 with the ZF650S 6 speed.

Either your clutch fork is bent or the bushings on the clutch pedal are worn. There is also a possibility the pilot bearing is worn.
