    perhaps get the desert does front jackers then add a couple washers or similar to the rear to get the lift you want,

    Thanks, I didn't think of this.

    The next issue is that I may be too tall on the steering wheel. I like being close to the center of gravity. I did buy the 1.25" but I had lower back pain and my legs were touching the steering wheel.

    I will try your idea, thanks again.

    I have the Desert Does It 1.25" seat jackers that you mentioned. No spacer in the rear. 6'2" tall and its AMAZING.
    Seat gave me severe back pain often before. After seat jackers its comfortable to drive for many hours. No real loss in head room.
    Just get them! you wont regret it

    You are a lot taller than me, I am only 5'8". I did get them but they hurt my lower back. I think 1.25" is too much of a raise for me but that's the only size they offer. Thanks for the input tho

    Thanks! My steering wheel is already at the most top position. The issue I have is that I have always driven small cars (Genesis Coupe, Mustang and my M4). I want to be close to center of gravity but I feel like I have no knee support.

    Sorry, I am very picky. I have an idea but it's going to require me to machine the slot hole in the back a little bit longer.

    I hated the 1.25" raise. I think on their actual website they have just rear lift in increments of 1/4". I have some that are at 1/2" and they have been ok.
