Same here, I miss my seats they were soo comfy. If anything the wheel needed to come lower for me, but I didn't have tilt steering.

Sounds like aftermarket seats are not the best for option or seat for you Focusboy. You can always try making spacers to raise the seat height while still using the brackets (I would make them solid blocks with holes through them for the bolts and used longer stronger bolts). You'd be surprised what half an inch height increase will feel like. Just look at the stock height adjustment, when adjusted it makes a big difference.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
