What I meant was engage 1first, roll till it binds.
Free it Engage 2nd gear, roll it till it binds. Repeat for all other gears and see if any gear will not bind.
Once the binding point is reached, does rolling the truck in reverse direction. Free up the gears?
When the vehicle shakes when reversing, it could mean one of the forward gears is engaged and not freeing up.
You would have to strip the trans to find out the problem. Most probably excessive clearance due to a loose lock nut since you suspect some synchros are bad.
