Need help - Clutch Pedal Adjustment

Hey Guys,

I've had 4 different mustangs but this one is the first that i've actually starting digging in and doing the work myself versus paying someone to do the work for me. I've got a 2004 Mustang V6 5 Speed and have just installed an adjustable clutch kit from American Muscle:

The reason I got this kit was because my clutch pedal was vibrating horribly when it was not pressed in. I was hoping that this kit would also allow me to change the pedal location but after the install, I couldn't find a way to do such.
Being 6'2", my legs are crammed in my throat when I try to change gears. I'm aware of a seat bracket that you can buy to push the seat further back but I'm really not interested in getting it. Do you guys have any recommendation as to what I can do??

That's funny, I ordered the kit before I went to bed last night. It should be here Friday and I'm going to install it this weekend. I'll post if it works!!

I stand 6'3" and use that kit and the MM clutch cable kit. Shifting is super easy. Now heel & toe is another thing.

Phil, that kit takes the slack out from the clutch pedal right? I want to lower the pedal the match the brake pedal, but it creates slack in the clutch cable. Hopefully this kit will allow me to drop it and get rid of that slack.

The previously mentioned MM kit moves the height of the clutch pedal when at rest.

Is the clutch cable in your kit from AM adjustable? I am specifically asking about the cable, not the quadrant or firewall adjuster.

FWIW the MM clutch cable kit has a solid spacer that goes on the cable to help properly preload the TOB.

Yea the clutch cable is adjustable. The end that connects with the clutch fork is threaded. I didn't have a spacer that came with my clutch cable.

I have read numerous accounts of difficulty with adjustable clutch cables. You may be able to make yours work, but I am not sure what to suggest.

Alright guys... I got the clutch pedal stop kit in this weekend and put it on. MUCH BETTER!! The clutch pedal is now the same distance as the brake pedal. This is a must have for any mustang owner with long legs!!!
