dose it only grind in first gear. sounds like a tranny problem i am a auto tech from kckcc and changed many clutchs on dsm's as long as the dowel pins are in the tranny then alignment is not an issue. these trannies are sealed so my advise is to find a new one or get a gsx
and linkage should be fine as long as it isnt twisted. linkage usually comes into question when your car pops out of gear. good luck
and cheak your cv shafts just incase see if they are hitting something when the engine moves during acceleration if so cheak all of your moter mounts
