Question hard shifting from Park to reverse to drive

Hey guys out there, I have a very big question to ask. here's the scenario, i was parked at an uphill road, and when i tried to shift from PARK to reverse to drive, its too hard to shift it and what i did is forced it and it made a thud sound coming from transmission i guess. so my question is, is this a big problem. does it really happens when you're parked uphill or downhill? please i need your reactions.
thank you.

Re: hard shifting from Park to reverse to drive

When parked either uphill or downhill, set your parking brake before you put it in park. That will take care of that problem.

Re: hard shifting from Park to reverse to drive

yea, when parking on a hill, it is likely that you will get that clunk if you dont set the parking brake and let it catch before you put it in park.

Re: hard shifting from Park to reverse to drive

do what other people have recommended by using your parking brake before putting the transmission into park. This then leaves the weight of the truck on your rear brakes instead of the rear differential and/or your U joint.
