Trouble downshifting into 3rd and 2nd gear

Hey everyone when I attempt to downshift my '95 YJ from 4th to 3rd or 3rd to 2nd the gears start to grind unless I'm at the perfect RPM. I've talked to a few people and they've suggested the synchronizers are worn and need to be replaced. Has anyone ever encountered this problem? Thanks in advance for your help.
