I wouldn't be able to drive a Viper without their 2" seat lowering kit. If you don't like it, then see a surgeon to remove some of your backbone so you will fit. /images/graemlins/flipa.gif

im just as tall as you and fit better with out it that i do now with it just sitting in there not bolted in. i could have made better brackets with some tin snips, some tin roof and a soldering gun. who ever made these things needs to be shot. usually when you pay 200 bucks for 5 dollars worth of shit you get really good directions so you dont think you got fucked, not the case either with this pos.

Matt,
Send it to me, it will be better for you healthwise as you're about to blow a freakin gasket.
I will take this agravating pos off your hand for a 12 pack of your choice.
Let me know :)

Matt,

Maybe something was wrong with yours? I had the NW kit in my car and while it was a pain to install, it fit OK. Maybe it got bent in shipping or they sent the wrong parts?

This is a test, right? You're waiting to see who will begin with the jokes, right?

Doesn't Roe Racing have a seat lowering kit, too?
Not on his website! I wish he did. Probably worth a call. I'll check it out.

If this is the one inch kit...punt it...but if this is the fixed 2" seat lowering kit, I can tell you precisely how to install it painlessly, and it will be so comfortable you will be sleeping in your Viper...OK...not really...but it will rock!

its the 2 inch, and its installed right, and it sucks. ive tried it with shims and without shims and it sucks. i didnt have an issue with headroom, my problem was that my knee rests just above the notch on the door where its supposed to rest and it bugs me with the stock seat setup, the lowering kit didnt fix that and it took away from the legroom, i fit in the car with a stock seat even with a helmet so im taking it out today.

50 bucks??

Matt...You have to shem the crap out of the front of the seat...I literally used two pieces of 3/4" x 2 1/2" pipe to raise the front of the seat...Never been more comfy in my RT!

Up here in MN, we have done this 2" drop to fours RT's now...and all happy owners...with the front of the seat elevated...

You are correct about $200 for $5 worth of parts...No way the R&D for these parts even cost $200...
