Clutch or tranny problems :(

I am at a complete loss here
I know the transmissions on the 2002 GT's won't allow the clutch to be adjusted easily, so we have to by the adjuster kit. Well I know you can adjust it by pulling it towards you I have heard. Mine has 2 places at the very bottom it'll catch which I like but cause the TOB to squeal even while I drive. Or at the way top were it drives fine. And I mean way top were you have to only push in an inch to shift.
Also I think the pressure plate may be warped because when starting in first sometimes when car is warmed up, the car will shake pretty badly sometimes untill I release the whole way.
Any ideas ? It's being dropped off Wednesday to get it re adjusted somehow and to look at the plate, this place did the work and it should still be under warranty.

Adjuster kit? Got a link, I've never heard of something like. If your tob is squealing its pretty much already shot, no adjusting, as in adjusting the self adjusting pedal if your stock, will only maybe buy you a little time if any. Sounds like a complete clutch job, I recommend FRPP tob and pilot bearing no matter what clutch you go with, also resurface or replace the flywheel.

Ok gotcha, yeah man. If clutch is only 6 months old and all other things are created equal, then a new cable may help you out, and might as well get an after market quadrant and firewall adjuster too
