FYI with these really study the seating position sitting in the passenger seat (assuming yours is manual there) and try to imagine it with the wheel and pedals. Aside from the seatback tilt that's the only position you're going to get. I had a manual driver track installed at one time, I loved the simplicity, small weight reduction and the under seat storage bonus, but try as I might I just couldn't get comfortable with the position. YMMV
I swapped my passenger side over to manual. I removed my drivers side yesterday to try to get it working. I also have another I got from the junkyard. Both will only move around a quarter inch. If I put a wrench on the flat part of the shaft they will turn freely. There’s no blockages. I just don’t want to deal with trying to keep one working.
What do you think about putting spacers between the seat and the track to adjust the height? It’s a 2 inch bolt that only needs less than half and inch to go theough the seat and track.
