I'M NOT SURE IF THIS WILL HELP.... BUT I WAS LOOKING FOR A WAY TO BRING THE BACK UP A BIT TO MAKE IT MORE COMFORTABLE FOR ME TO DRIVE. I'M 5'8" AND THE SEAT WAS RECLINED TOO MUCH FOR MY TASTE...YOU CAN BUY A 5/8 OD-3/8 ID FLEXIBLE RE-INFORCED HOSE AT HD/PLUMBING SUPPLY THAT HAS APPROX. 1/8" THICK WALLS.. YOU SPLIT THE HOSE DOWN THE MIDDLE... THEN PLACE A 2' SECTION ON THE BOTTOM SEAT BACK TO BRING IT UP ABOUT 1/8 "..THIS 1/8" MAKES A DIFFERENCE.... IF YOU WANT MORE TILT FORWARD AS I DID, ADD A PIECE OF 3/16" OR SO, WOOD BETWEEN THE HOSE AND THE BOTTOM SEAT BACK.... IT IS SNUG ENOUGH TO HOLD WELL, BUT YOU CAN TAPE IT IF YOU WISH........
