[DML] Re: Raising the seat height

You are forgetting the possability of a rear end collison. In such a
collision the forces leveraging on the seat back with all of the
occupant's weight will put large loads on the front studs, nuts, and
washers trying to pull them through the fiberglass and the rear ones
down through the floor. In a front end collison or a side impact the
forces on the seat are negligable. Using large washers and/or shims
will spread the load out.
