Who thinks the seats are......?

angled to far back? I'm going to be removing the bolts in the back and using washers to elevate the seat back so it sits more level I'm a very short guy and it doesn't help my circulation. No herein lies my problem that I just thought of if I raise the seat to much the bolts might not be long enough to reach.

Can always match up the bolts and find bigger ones. I don't know if that would help or make a huge different. I do know what you mean about the seat angling far back since i am short myself haha.

I hated the stock Focus seats. A set of Corbeau A4's did the trick nicely.

yeah but I'm sure you had to fab up mounting brackets etc etc........it sounds so easy to just add washers we'll see.

If you replace the bolts make certain they are strong bolts
https://www.google.com/search?q=bolt...w=1067&bih=503

The markings on the bolts indicate the strength to yield.
Get at least grade 8 bolts.
With washer total have them be the same length plus exactly the extra washers.
Otherwise the bolt may hit something below, in the floor.

I do not see any problem with your tilting the seat up from thee back, as long as the rise in height is under one inch.
