it does work, its a pain in the rear to do but its much much tighter than the stock one.
i can't remember how i got mine in, i know i had to modify the shifter pivot mount or something along the lines.

more than likley your slop is not at the shifter but in the bushings on the trans side of the rod. i used my drill press and some hard plastic and made new bushings, it felt like a new car after that.
