I only have 31k on my '09 so I didn't have much play in the lever to begin with. After the install, I did notice a decrease in throw and it takes a little bit more force to get it in gear, which I like.
Thanks for the reply. I was wondering if there was any real difference to the shift arms. I'm happy with mine too. I updated my previous post with some pictures of 1st and 2nd so you can see how far the throws are now.
