Does my pinion angle look to low

I removed my 1" TC drop this morning and wanted to get you guys opinion on my pinion angle. I get no vibrations up to 60 mph.

However I ran into an issue with my shifter hitting the console in 1st, 3rd, and 5th gear. So should I add back some washers to drop the TC till I get clearance for the shifter and adjust pinion, or modify the console?

If it’s running well with no vibes - definitely modify the console to clear the shifter.

Do not modify the console, just bend the shifter. You can't modify that console to work unless you want to hack a big fucking hole in the shift boot or run without it and still have a big fucking hole.

Pinion is a little low.
I dropped the TC a little less than a half inch and it is perfectly in line now. Also removed the bolt that holds the shifter on which was hitting the console and put two 1/4-20 set screws in the side which solved that problem. It's been a good day. Just have to hook my thumb throttle back up.
