I had a B&M short shifter on my 93 nissan 240sx and had nothing but problems with it it was well made but when I got it installed there was a grinding sound in 1st 3rd and 5th. So look into it before you buy one

I called the guys at URD and asked a few questions about it the other day. Of course they said I would love it and go ahead and get it...........but they ma be a little biased. As far as the lift question I do not know. The shift kit does come with a spacer as part of it to raise the shifter for the new ball joint, so maybe if it were the same thickness you might not use it and be ok with what you got but IDK. You would have to ask someone who really knows what they are talking about lol.
