I am in the same boat ,I want to lower the height of the knob but don't feel the need to change the shifter.

I was a huge fan of the Tommy Kaira Hebi Bebi Shift Knob. I had one on my 350 and it total changed the feel of the shifter. I kind of regret selling it now because they're so hard to get your hands on and so expensive.

whatever you end up getting, get something that has a bit of weight to it. the twm shifter is great, but i disliked it when i ran with a non-weighted knob.
