high clutch

My E30, like all E30s are, has a clutch that has a high engage point. I have a problem with pushing the clutch all the way to the floor. This is not needed because the clutch engages pretty high up. Is there something i can do to stop having to push it all the to the floor. like a block or something number the clutch that stops it at the end of fully engaging the clutch.

You can fab a bracket that moves the pivot point back, put in a clutch stop, or like my 944, put a little air in the line and the pedal will sit lower. I would do the first in combo with the second if it were me. Along with a braided steel clutch line from UUC.

Clutch stop is just a rubber pad, that you hit that stops the pedal from going any further. You just screw it to the floorboard basically.
