MAybe I should have also told you that I am 6'2" tall. That is why the "straight" rod design did not work for me, because it places the shift knob too far away from me in my normal seating position. It was a real stretch.
But it might be OK for you.
Just a tip : superimpose your lever draft onto a draft of the stock lever, keeping the bottom pivot point the same. That will tell you right away how much further the knob will be from the stock position.
