This is what I did Brian (on my 87 wagon that I brought to Johns place)
Cut the shifter linkage 2 inches, then thread the linkage on the remaining metal part with a 1.25 pitch die. Basically I used just as little of the metal AFTER the bend in the rod as i needed to have the knob fit on. using a shorter knob helps quite a bit too. (my brat is using my old 87 GL knob and it feels like driving an old school 1 ton chevy cause the stroke is so long)
anyway, EA82 how to cut and rethread the linkage is here:
My "short LENGTH" shifter
Oh, and I know the page says 1.75 inches, but it was really 2 inches... I fixed the shifter later and chopped off that extra 1/4 inch cause the boot wasnt staying on the knob.... now it is since I chopped that extra bit off
