Seat tracks & Spacers ??
So recently, I ordered a set of seat tracks from Don at OMS, and installed them over this past weekend. The PO had installed tac-welded seat tracks on the passenger side, which were obviously not adjustable. So now I have an adjustable passanger seat again Smile.

In the process of replacing the seat, I came across spacers between the seat and rail... raising the seat probably 1/2" to 5/8"... Did seats come from the factory like that? I re-installed the seat without using the spacers, and it fits fine.

The main reason I'm asking is because I think I want to remove them from the drivers side... I'm tall, and I can barely squeeze into the seat (under the steering wheel) as it is... Plus, I'd like to sit lower anyway.

So are these spacers standard, or did someone add them? If they are standard, is it OK to remove them? I assume so, as the seat seems to function just fine without them.
I don't have any spacers on mine that I'm aware of.

Just cruising along minding our own business when BAM!!! The LAWS show up.
Black spacers with a slide on clip on the bolt??

I have found these on several 71 converibles
and on 1 early 72 convertible and a 72 cougar

Not sure if factory or a dealer item
But all 5 -6 were exactly the same set up.

Just black spacers, no clips that I remember.

They are soon to be history. Don, you can have them if there is a market for them.
Thanks but I have a bunch of them
Maybe stick them on the pay it forward

i think that those were a dealer thing when you had a short driver.. it would raise the seat a little bit. when the steering wheel adjustment wasn't enough.

I've seen them on some fords.
