Since I shortened it, the throws arent near as far as they were. With moving the cable mount up an inch, the slop going front to back isnt as obvious, however the side to side is still there, just not as bad.
All in all it tightened it up, and shortened the throws. The only down side is that it takes more effort to shift now, which isnt a problem for me.
