YES, one side pivots on the bracket at the bellbousing. The other side pivots on a bracket attached to the body (now 1 inch higher) so you can try to lower this body bracket, but then the rod going through the firewall will be too short. You can cut it and weld in a section to make up the difference. OR do the switch to a hydraulic set up. Not the internal throwout bearing kind that leak all inthe clutch, but the one used on many YJ's and 4 cyl CJ's.
