New tranny, Shift Problem

I have recently put a new tranny in the focus BUT when I down shift to 2nd it is very hard to get it in gear.
Going from 1st to 2nd no problem but down shifting is a problem.
I checked links and stuff but IDK what the deal is any suggestions or opinions???!!!!

ANd one other question arent both front wheels supposed to have power and spin not just the driver wheel.

i dont know about the shifting problem... but for tire spin... if you have an lsd installled... then yes.. both wheels should pull... if its an open (stock) differential... then no... one wheel peal it is...
