i installed the kb ss and i am very happy with it. i need to put the bearins in now but the shifter it great. i have one questions though. when i installed the shifter i rubbed up against the metal plate when i was in first gear. i tried to move it to the left to get some clearance but to no avail. i decided to take the whole thing out and put the bolts in the rubber piece. is this ok or should i try to put the metal piece back?
