The passenger seat in our 03 2.5x is very uncomfortable and we both notice it, sits too low for us. Would there be any reason I couldnt just install some kind of spacers or risers to give it some lift? Talking about maybe 2 inches.

Are those the stock seats? :confused: The reason I ask is that STi seats sit nearly that much lower & that's the reason I used the stock mounting rails on the Sti seats installed in our Foresters. :wink:

I don't see why you couldn't MOD it. You'd have to pull the seat & detach the mounting rail. Once you do that, you can see what needs to be added to raise the seat height. A word of caution. Make sure whatever you do will be as strong & secure as the stock mounting. You don't want it coming apart during an accident! :icon_eek:

I raised my recaros up since they sat SUPER low. All i did was a take a 1in piece of square tubing(see below) and drilled new holes and bought longer bolts to go through. The only concern I would have is if it were to mess up the angle of the side airbags. My seats don't have airbags thus I wasn't worried about this
