Questions about seat Height?

I just had a quick question and maybe its just me but I thought i would ask anyway, Im just getting use to my focus I just got and I really like it all except for one thing that I didnt notice at first. I feel like im sitting really high in the car.. Im 6'2 and it just seems like i cant get down in my car. Im not looking to be a low rider or anything but are there any decent seats or options to lower my seat height ?

Thanks
JD

its not you theres actually little risers on the floor but I don't think you can lower the stock height. But their is a little revolving knob on the front of the seat that moves the cushion up and down.

On my car, there is a crank below the seat (looks like a window crank) that actually raises and lowers the bottom cushion a lot. I have it all the way down and it's great.

Yeah I thought they all had that. SVTs have a little power up.down switch though, I didn't hook mine up.

I think mine's on the lowest setting, it doesn't go real low, but it's possible you could get a little lower?

6'5" and i have mine down all the way! I find that the Focus has a fair amount of room for the size of car! Better than the Sprint I use to drive !!

haha, yeah, the guy is huge, his knees are out the windows, and nelson is standing on the curb "HA HA!"

the guy gets out, makes nelson pull his pants down and walk all the way down the block with his pants down as everyone in town stands there laughing at him, I LOVE THAT ONE!

lol, and that's just what i was thinking of while reading all these posts about tall people in foci.
