Water appears there not due to leaks from above, but from below. Look closely 
at the front of the rear wheelwells and the rear of the front wheelwells. Rust 
thru is common in both of those places and lets water into the heater channels. 
This is a common problem.

I think the shift rods were always straight. I have a couple that I believe I 
checked recently after a similar question came up, and they were perfectly 
straight. I've never installed one of these rods, however, so I'm not sure 
about your question on the second hanger; however, I don't THINK there is one.
