I have a Hurst shifter lever that is rectangular in shape, but like most it also arches back toward the center console mid way up. Mine additionally inclines toward the driver side, pretty noticeably. It makes for comfortable shifting for sure. I also noticed on the shifting boot I got from some advice in here and with the aid of internet pics, the boot is off sett toward the drivers side as well. My question is, did the original shifters incline toward the drivers side or just go up and back. I cant discern from internet pics. Its a hard this to actually see in photos. Thanks.
