I had the opposite problem, mine were in line and I wanted to raise my clutch pedal up a little. I'm sure this would work for you. I unbolted the entire pedal and took it to the machine shop where the welder cut the verticle piece and simply moved it forward 1" and rewelded. It came out perfect and at the same angle. I'm sure you could do the same in the opposite direction as long as the front of the footbox did not come into play.
if you had the stock quadrant adjuster you can put a small hose clamp on the stop. to adjust the pedal down rotate the fat part of the clamp up to raise the stop. I don't know if this will work with an aftermarket quadrant. chris
You can lower your pedal by installing a home made pedal stop and using your cable adjuster. However,be careful about lowering the pedal hight. I'm using a Breeze Auto. quadrant and adjuster and have to push my pedal almost to the firewall at std. petal hight. If you get it too low, your clutch will drag and cause shifting difficulties.
