MGW Shifter install

Quick question havent tried to install the mgw shifter yet on my 2008 mustang gt but it suggests to lower the transmission an inch before removing old shifter and installing new one but says you dont have to. Has any one installed a mgw shifter without lowering the transmission? Did you have any complications getting the nut off without lowering the tranny or any other complications? Also best place to put the jacks?

its possible to do it without lowering the trans but i would reccomend it. its easy to do just loosen the bolts a little. i did mine and couldnt imagine not lowering it. just look for subframe rails or stout crossmembers to place the jack stands.

Mine slipped right in without having to lower it. seems to be a case by case thing.
