no alls you need to do is go undernieth the truck and find the linkage connecting the shifter to the tranny lincage gaget and lossen it a bit then when its in park put the shifter as far up so it lines up on the colum with park then while another persons holin it up just tighten the nut.....it'll take like 2 min

Close actually you do it in N with a 3-5lb weight hanging on the shifter..disconnect the linkage at the trans ans then do all the ajustments under the truck...
Then if it is still out the older ones do have the dial that was mentioned earlier...go there SECOND and ajust that up...[cheers]
