Slop in stick zf6

I just bought a 99 f350 with zf6 and when in gear the stick can move in about a 4in diameter oval. Is this normal, if not how do I go about fixing it. Thanks

It could be in the shift tower or in the shift rails them selves more then likely the bushings in the tower are shot but any zf6 is gonna have a little slop

My tranny was supposedly recently replaced (I believe it) and I have less than 1.5" of play while its in any given gear.

Yeah they looks good but I think it's in the rails cause I do have difficult shifts in all gears not enough to say get a rebuilt but not as smooth as I believe it should shift.

Was the flat piece at the end of the shifter warn in at all? And believe or not the the more worn these transmissions are (within reason) the smoother they shift brand new they are pretty stiff and can be a pain sometimes

You mean the portion that actual contacts the shift selector the ball end looked like it had a bit of wear but not to severe where you can feel it. I've been leaning towards the clutch being smoked. I replaced the hydraulics and fluid already.
