You must be short armed like me! I hate the fact that in proper driving posture I have to lean forward to shift. I wasn't aware there was a relocation kit! But I intend to do exactly what you suggest, either bending the sucker, or replacing it with something else all together that I can reach. I've come to the conclusion that this is a common complaint. Maybe one of our machinists on the forum could produce a more effective shift lever alternative, maybe build a short shift kit into it?

Just my thoughts...
