I believe this theory as well. I don't think it is a coincidence that these trucks have a crappy plastic shift linkage bushing and consistently wear out syncros.
I overhauled my zf on my own. It's really nice having one that shifts like new. One transmission doesn't make me an expert, but I learned a bunch in the process. I'm not on here all the time, but drop me a line if you have specific questions that aren't being answered. I might be nearby too, depending on where in PA you live.
