Default High seat position

Does anyone else have a problem with the PTs front seats being too high? Is they a kit or something out there to lower them about 3 inches? Thanks Larry

Do you have the drivers side power seat? The only thing the power does is raise and lower the seat. No forward/back movement, that's still done manually. If you don't have the power seat, I'm not sure of the height that the non-power seat is at, but it might be too high for you. Try siting is someone's PT that has the power seat and lower it all the way to see if that meets your needs. If it does, of course, you'd have to spend the $$ to buy a new power seat or find one in a recycle yard.

Welcome, Larry.
I agree with you. The power seat doesn't go down low enough, and a sunroof makes the problem worse.
there have been threads about this since the PT was new, but I never saw anyone that did anything to solve it, other than recline the seat a bit.
What I did think about was to take the seat out, cut the sides of the base, overlap the cut sides and either bolt or weld them together.

I got the power seat and I think it even in its lowest position is too high but I set my seat recliner back just a bit and I find the sweet spot. Also, my power seat does go in 6 directions - forward and backwards - up & down - and angle front and rear. But you have to have the recline back to about 80 degrees for angle back. I do wish the seat went back least its comfortable.
