    Ok I just bought a 91 civic HB and I'm too damn big. :eek: It has seats out of a 95 Civic in it, I think thats what the seller told me anyway. Are the seats out of a 95 taller or am I just too big? Is there any way to lower the seats a little? I'm 6 foot 3 and look funny with my head on the roof of the car. Any help, thanks- crombie :)

    You could modify your brackets....

    I know that when I installed my Corbeau seats and brackets into my 95 Civic, I sat about an inch and a half lower than stock. You might want to consider just upgrading your seats.

    most of the time upgrading to aftermarket seats, that need new rails will lower your positioning

    Aftermarket seats won't always lower the drivers position. My friend has Sparcos in his ITR, and they sit higher.

    Well, if the seat mounts are the same as my 89 CRX Si, I could sell you my Corbeau bracket... then all you have to buy is one Corbeau seat. That will definitely sit you an inch or two lower than stock.

    Damn. I just checked Corbeau's site- the brackets are different between the CRX and the hatch.

    Have vertebre sugicaly removed.... i didnt think a civic was that short inside my friend is 6'4" and he fits in a 94 civic and a miata, if you dont want the seats to slide any more you could bolt them to the floor... just an idea
