Take the counter weight off and see if that helps...Our trannys are infamous for being "hard" to get in to some gears...I had this issues and put a new rear tranny mount and took the counter weight off the shift linkage and it shifts like a new tranny.

I love the help you guys give people who come with real concerns... Have you checked out the TSB's? There are two: one specificto 5th gear and one for all gears. Tell your dealer and check it out!

04-21-5 NOV 04 M/T - Hard to Shift Gears

05-8-1 MAY 05 M/T - Difficult or Unable to Shift Into 5th Gear

There is also a TSB for clutch wear which also includes the actual Getrag tranny. I had this done about a year ago and shifting improved dramatically.
