Neck pieces of different angles

I'm wondering if anyone makes alternate neck pieces. When I play, I stand. The new sax I just got (Jupiter) is a little tigher and has a little different dimensions than my old horn. I had to bring up my harness a lot to get the mouthpiece at the right place, and now my left arm feels like a little T-rex arm in an awkward (for me) position/angle. I'd like to drop the sax harness down. Though if I do, I have to bend my neck down and can't look straight ahead. So obviously the neck piece for the horn should be angled up more, instead of a 90 degree angle.

Does anyone make alternate neck pieces in different heights/angles?

Could I just find an alto neck (they usually appear angled upward), if the junction diameter matches?

Also, you want the mouthpiece to enter your mouth more or less horizontally. What you're proposing will alter that.
