As long as you can get fullr ange of motion fore/aft and left/right without binding the shifter up or running out of room, you are all good.

Are you running into an issue that you are trying to resolve? Or just proactively getting all your tools together in advance of making a shifter change?

ive replaced 2 shifters myself and found no need for this tool. Unless you are running into issues, just consider what Steve points out here and you should be fine.
