seat adjustment

I would like to get a seat slider - adjuster for the drivers side - I have found 3 or 4 on Amazon.

Anybody have a favorite?

Also how easy is it to remove the seat if the slider is attached?

Yeah I do that also - but still want an adjuster.

I put them in my 4. The way they come they will raise your seat a couple inches. I also hated it and almost took them back off. I fixed the problem though. My seats are pretty much at stock height with the sliders.. Get a set of seat lowering bases and do away with all the hardware that came with the sliders.. Mount the slider directly to the bottom of the seat then to the base.. Getting ride of that thick plastic base and all those plates brings them right down.. Only difference is with the lowering bases the seat reclines a hair more then stock. So the back of the seat is a little lower then stock but the front is a little higher. Which I like better. To me the stock seats sit up a little to straight.
in the picture the drivers seat has a slider the passengers doesn't...

Isn't is it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do "practice"?
Why do we drive on the parkway and park in the driveway?

Re: seat adjustment

yes, hit head a few times! I just received laser tabs seat lowering bases that eliminate the plastic base but i have not tried it on my wife's. I noticed only a 1/2" drop on the regular seats. I also installed the desert moulding concepts under seats, going to try it this weekend!

Its not just the lower bases.. You have to mount the slider directly to the seat and to the base.. You don't use the two steel brackets on the top and bottom Those add a couple inches to the height.. Using a lowering base won't do anything if you use that bent steel bracket made to fit into the plastic base..
