Hard to shift ?

So-
For the last few days the SS is Getting hard to shift ,
A quick down shift at say 70 mph from 5th to 3rd won't happen , You have to really try at speed to do that shift .
Every gear including reverse is much harder than ever before , I have checked the lame plastic pcs on the cables , greased the clutch spring and all cables relating to the stick shift , And it's still the same .
everything seems fine , But shifting is worse every day . While sitting it shifts fine in all gears , While driving , Not so much.
Clutch pulls as hard as ever , So i'm at a lose , Any ideas would be much appr. It drives and shifts , But i'm not racing anybody in this condition,
I can't, It just takes to long to make the shift. WTF ?

Might be time to dump the 1.0 batride and start on BATRIDE 2.0 98740 miles as she sits in the garage.
Probally get what i owe on it in a trade.

Might be worthwhile to change the tranny fluid maybe? (even tho' Manual says it never needs changing as long as it doesn't leak or loose fluid) http://chevyhhr.net/forums/showthread.php?t=7429

Chris, I think it is one upper and lower motor mount, and two tranny mounts.
Could also be a blocked fluid passage. Don't take my word though, designer not a mechanic. Could you have a busted linkage?

You know it could just. be pissed off about the Camaro

Thats funny ! ,
I have been talking about the camaro in front of the SS , I was hopeing they would get along . LOL
I wish i knew what was going on . Did 130 mph today , No problem , But geting threw the gears was a slow move. (on a track , LOL)
I'll have to take it in ,
Feeling like at 100,000 miles it might start becoming a money pit . I'll check all mounts in the AM when theres some real light.

or possibly the slave cylinder.
