I know alot of you have taken on the task of lowering your seats yourselves, but, as I have no fabrication facilities (or the know-how to go along with), can anyone recommend a shop in Southern Cal or Western Az that can do this? Maybe Prestige can do it?

I actually just lowered my seats 4" and reclined then about 1.5". Did it all last week and its actually pretty easy but it is quite involved. The only real obstacle I ran into was the exhaust inhibiting how low you can place the seat mount. I modified mine so it would clear the exhaust allowing me to go lower. At the same time I made a battery mount to accept a full size car battery and everything still uses stock seat pans and mounts. Its a far better and more comfortable seating position in my opinion.

These are the only pictures that I have at the moment. Not the greatest quality but my prowler is in pieces right now. The seats give you a general idea of how low and reclined they are now. I lowered them 4" and reclined them about 1.5". The seats are actually 2" wider than standard suspension seats as well. Hope this helps.

Jordan:D

**The last few pictures are of the seats at the stock height (much higher!).**
