shifter issues

Is the shifter a common problem with the svt ?

I'm a new SVT owner and having a hard time getting reverse.. and i discovered that the lower ball is popping in and out of its retainer.

Is there an upgrade kit for this or a known way to repair it ?

If you know how you may need to adjust your shift linkage. I personally don't know how to do this, but you should be able to find something on it by searching. Or maybe someone who has had to adjust them will chime in...
