Insted of a bushing I used one nut and washer where the bolt goes into the floor and one nut and washer against the shifter bracket. Infinitly variable length....no stacking washers or cutting bushings to the right sze.

My only concern would be it loosening up with vibration or use. Did you loctite the whole thing?

+1, I'd at least stick a lockwasher in between each nut and flat washer.

The space was exactly 1 & 1/16 tall before my Sector111 shifter mod, and afterward it was about a 64th under an inch. I went to Lowes and purchased a metal cylinder, 5 super-hard bushings that slid snugly inside, a longer bolt, a flat swasher and a lock washer. I ended up not needing the lock washer, I just used some blue loctite. In the end, you can probably do it a million ways and it'll work. I certainly noticed a difference :).

I did this a while ago so I forgot to mention that I used blue locktite. Thanks for pointing this out.

And before someone points out it is not infinitly variable length, but is continously variable.
