Questions relating to sloppy shifter

This is for a 1989 bmw e30 325i btw

I have a lot of play in my shifter and I did my research and learned its pretty common, especially since the car has 200k+ miles. So im looking at this rebuild kit from pelican parts that includes:

Center Shift Bearing
Shift Arm Bearing
Shift Arm bushing
Shift Arm Bushing Clip
Spacer Washers
Circlips
Shift Coupler
Shift Coupler Dowel Pin
Also thinking about getting a shift lever from a z3 1.9 to shorten the throw a tad.

My question is can I get to all these parts without taking off the exhuast and driveshaft? Is there any other parts i should be buying? And will i need to bend the selector shaft with this set up?

( i know this isnt about an e46 but I want to have my thread seen )
