Re: TMI Sport R seats on a 68....height issue revisited
This is all very helpful - thanks.
Camaro Guy- I do have new back foam and new base springs, so maybe that is not helping things. Are you running the Sport R setup? If yours is ok, maybe something else is wrong on my setup. I'll investigate further.
Garth - That photo was also great. Very, very helpful to visualize what the seat mod will do and potential clearances.
Well - 3/4" drop is a start. I am looking for find a decent fabricator to do the mount modification right now. I can weld, but I do not trust my skill enough to risk doing the seat mount.
FYI - I have the morris concept 3 point seat belts - they look like they clear better than the older style belt retractors. So think I am all good there.
Would ideally prefer to retain the seat hinge cover as well. Uncovered hinge is not the best looking feature of the seat....so will keep the hinge covers.
I'll do the seat mounts, the extenders, then based on the outcome - will look at getting the seat base pulled apart again and have the foam shaped, check springs at same time. Shop will then need pick apart vinyl cover, cut to new size and re-make the seat base covers. A lot of money. : (
The shop I went to was a decent place - pretty sure they know what they are doing installing seat springs. Attaching the new spring assembly to the seat base - did not look like rocket science?
Is there something they could have done when adding the new springs that could be contributing to my issue? If someone has had experience with a spring fitment problem - would be grateful for further info. If I know more - I can then ask my shop what they did exactly.
This TMI upgrade is not coming cheap....
