DC02'GT said:I have the factory leather seats & yes they are power. I have also noticed that the factory cloth seats that are manual feel as if they sit lower than the leather ones. I don't know if it is because the cushion inside of the two seats are different or if it is from all the power controls under the seat. My seats do feel as if they are alot firmer than the cloth seats. Can I put manual controls on my seats & do away with they power controls???
Thanks for the two links but I have enough leg room, I just hate my head being so close to the roof. That is the only positive thing I can say about a Camaro is that they do have plenty of head room!
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know how this turns out.DC02'GT said:Thanks for the help. I guess it is time to ditch the power controls & get some manual tracks.
JCKnife- That would be too easy, & besides I do not want to add a roll cage in order to keep a vert from twisting. I'll stay with the manual seat tracks & my hard top. I'm not bashing, verts look sweet, they're just not for me. On the other hand, you are up north, a vert in Texas & you can feel as if you are being cooked alive!!!
Thanks for the help, but, WOW... $700 per seat is a little steap for me!Toms302 said:I had the same headroom issue in my 2003, and it did place the rear view mirror right in my line of sight. I had to scrunch down to see stoplights unless I stopped a fair distance from them. I'm only 6'2" but overall height isn't the problem, it's how much of your height is in your legs and how much is in your torso.
I ordered a set of manual tracks from www.stangparts.com, and when I went to install them a month later I found that the seat belt receiver had been hacked off. I didn't know that 1999 and newer have the seatbelt receiver mounted to the seat track, not the transmission tunnel. I do beleive that the manual track would have done the trick if I was sent one that hadn't been cut up.
My final solution was to get a set of Recaro LXF's with custom seat brackets from www.speedwaremotorsports.com - I am now almost too low in the car! The passenger side did not lower as much as the driver side for some reason. I now actually feel comfortable in the car - it is a huge difference!
I chose the LXF model because it does not have the holes in the top for a shoulder harness, as I don't plan on getting a harness. The LXF has a headrest that is adjustable in height and position. This was another problem I had with my stock seats - the headrest all the way up was still only high enough to snap my neck in case of an accident.
I have had a 1991, a 1998 and now a 2003 - it seems like each year the headroom gets less and less. Funny, I thought the average height of the population was slowly increasing...
That's exactly what I was thinking about doing. What the hell. Hey it's $35 compared to $800-$1000 for aftermarket seats.Toms302 said:I think the used rails are only about $35. Not too bad a loss if they don't work out.

leg room mod
This mod works great (I did it in my 95) but does not work on the 99 & up because they have a different bracket the mounts to the seat.
