I had the same problem in my 1990 300ZX non-turbo. The problem almost completely disappeared after I had the tranny/differential flushed. Shifting became much quieter, but I occasionally felt that grinding even when shifting perfectly. It usually happened during a high-rpm shift. The problem is now completely gone after replacement of two plastic bushings that sheath the bolt that links the shifter stick to the transmission control arm. They had worn off and fallen away. This caused there to be much extra "play" in the stick shift. Now the shifter is as tight as when it was new, and I no longer grind the gears. It was a $4 fix.
