Has anyone ever heard of seat risers?

I have a '77 Firebird that is uncomfortable with my long legs, a guy once said they make seat risers to raise the front the seat upwards?

Anyone ever hear of such an item?

Thanks,
Jim

I have seen adapters to slider the seat further back, but not risers.

As a tall guy I feel like I am sitting on the floor at times, the 74-75 Horsecollar seats had a nice rise to the fronts and I think GM went cheap by 77.

Yes I have heard of them. Put a set in my 2006 jeep rubicon. They are a stud spacer that screws onto the floor stud and has a stud sticking up to except your seat and original nut. Very simple to install.

Some 3rd gens and many 4th gens had manual seat brackets that both moved forward and back, and also had an adjustment to tilt the front of the seat bottom up and down. Take a walk through a junkyard ... it'll be the cars with the cloth seats that have them
