so i had installed tenzo r seats in my 5th gen gts. i used wedge engineering seat brackets and thouht everything would go great.

BUT when i put the seats in...my head was roughly 1 inch from the roof! These seats sat so high in the car it was so uncomfortable and i just had to take them out.

I thouht about why it might be that way, but still dont have an answer...anyone else wanna help me out with this because i really wanna put some new seats in my car. the old ones are really showing their age!

The brackets add height, unless you get some seats designed to sit low low low... Best bet would be to fabricate the new mounts on the stock floor pan... or just enjoy your GTS seats...

I think my nest step may be to just get the front two seats reupuolstered ( i know i didnt spell that right) lol

anyone know of any good interior shops around the south puget sound or Tacoma area

I'd ask Korean Joey, and yeah, the GTS seats pretty much own, if you don't have power lumbar, you could look for a driver seat that does before you reupholster your seats.

So you just wanted to change seats to not have ripped seats?

Dougy, there are seat brackets that are designed to actually sit lower than stock. There is a thread about a new seat install that was done by DarthRipley over at AllTrac.net. Do a search for it over there. she lists the part number for the brackets that were used.
