Corbeau seats too high - HELP!
#1
So I got my dashboard all finished and put together tonight. Installed my new seats and hopped in to install the steering wheel. I get the wheel tightened up and a thought occurs to me. "I'm sitting pretty high. What's it like to get out/in the car now?" Barely made it out!!! Angry They do look great though...

These are the seats I got...

I also got their brackets which are pretty low...

Looks like the seats have a bit more cushion than the stock seats and the bolsters don't help as far as getting in and out are concerned. Another thing I noticed is that the seats do not slide back very far. I have to slide them all the way back to fit in. I suppose if I were tiny they would be perfect.

Any thoughts on remedies? Smaller steering wheel? Tilt steering?

Thanks,
Bluto

Those seat brackets do not look low to me, seems like they lift the rails 2" or so based on the photo.

The stock brackets are about as low as you can go, I'd say you need to do some fabricating to make some brackets that are as low as you can go.

I have stock seats and a Grant 13.5 inch steering wheel and although I can get in and out of the vehicle there is not a lot of room,
I would try to lower the seats if possible and then if needed a smaller steering wheel might be the answer
Tilt steering is an expensive option so leave it until last

The picture shown is not the actual bracket. The ones I got are very low...

It's just that those seats are too high. They have a 4.5" base height. It's my fault really...but I loved the look. I need to send them back and get the RRS series that has a 2.5" base height.

BTW, they sell extender rails that allow the seats to be slid back another 4". That will help a lot.
