Doubtful.. Maybe a new synchro and a lil adjustment but that sounds about normal for a fox clutch

The clutch should engage about 1-2 inches of the floor...if you have a firewall adjuster that is where you can take the slack out,or at the clutch fork it can be adjusted...this is of course if you have an adjustable cable...or if you have the stock quadrant pulling up on the clutch adjusts the quadrant to clear up some slack

My cable adjusts at the clutch fork...if you look under your car where the cable attaches to the trans you'll see a threaded rod with two nuts that can be adjusted...and if you have the firewall adjuster the its right on the firewall under the hood where the clutch cable comes from the cab...if neither is there then you have a stock cable and most likely a stock ”self adjusting quadrant”
