Actually from what I understand an aftermarket STS doesn't raise the pivot point much higher than this. Considering you have to trim the shift boot about the same amount for either the mod or a "real" STS, the difference (in my opinion) is negigible compared to the cost differential. Would an extra fraction of an inch (that probably wouldn't affect the throw noticably) be worth $110? It's a judgement call.

Although, I can't speak for the 08 and up years.
