5th gear

I've got a 07 ss/sc and 5th gear is constantly slipping outta gear but the stick doesn't return to neutral. I have to bring it back to neutral and engage it again, then 2 minutes later it'll do it again, any ideas fellas?

It's either a worn shift fork or worn synchronizer hub, sleeve, and inserts. This would involve a complete transmission teardown and rebuild since there is no way one would go through all of this and do a piecemeal repair.

Depends. Ive seen them go as low as 200 and as much as 1200. Search .net. There's usually some for sale on there.

I wouldn't say synchro sleeve. 5th gear should have ring gear teeth, synchronizer, sleeve, gear, fork, and linkage. If it was a synchronizer sleeve (lol), then reverse would be affected as well, since reverse is the only straight gear on our transmissions. The rest are helical and 5th is sync'd with reverse on sleeve. just like 1-2, 3-4. I would check first linkage, then motor mount/trans mount.
