lots of little things you can do to make it work better, from shifter bushings, Mopar STS, better fluid etc.. . Recently I have found that a better shift knob design helps alot with making the gear changes more precise. I recently got rid of the ball shifter knob ( I had the stock one and the Modern polished metal ball). I swapped in a leather Momo upright pistol like knob. With our trannies you need to push and pull the shaft into the gears with some force and with fast moving shift actions. I find that fast shift action results in better shifts. Unlike some of the lighter-duty import trannies where you can guide it into the shift gates almost gingerly. The pistol like shift knob lets you pull and push the shift lever with more precise force and speed. The round shift ball style knobs give you less control. I've been really happy with the new shift knob, gear selection is much more precise, even with your arm still resting on the armrest. I've been able to get rid of maybe 95% of the rough shifting problems I used to have with this tranny through some small upgrades.
