5th gear grinding

ok im new to mustangs and this forum so please bare with me.

I have a 1998 mustang gt with 85000 and when i shift into 5th gear it grinds then goes into gear.

The thing is if i throw the shift all the way to the right and then push up to shift it will grind.....but if i don't and just throw it up right from fouth(supper close to going into third) it won't grind and it will shift smoothly.

I orded a short throw shifter thrusday before i noticed the problem andwas wondering if this will clear the problem up or what could be the problem here.
