RE: [DML] Re: Raising the seat height

Dave & John,

That is correct but I would not suggest it as raising the tracks like that
could make the mounting studs more prone to bending or breaking in a
collision. The lack of support would increase bending leverage and give the
seat more built-in inertia in a crash IMHO. Any of the engineers on the list
with theoretical experience in bending force loads and leverage effects care
to confirm or refute this? In any case not many shops would want to take on
the potential liability of doing any modifications to the mounting of your
seats but you're free to do so on your own. If you do raise the seat I'd
suggest at least shimming the tracks so they fully contact the floor but I'm
not recommending it....OK? It's something you might consider anyway.

The quick and dirty way would be to stack some washers under the seat 
on the mounting bolts. If you look under the car you'll see four nuts
