    08/09 WRX: Need to raise passenger seat

    Hey there; Does anybody know how to raise the passenger seat for the 09 Impreza WRX. My G.F. is too short to see over the dash and gives me trouble over it! It needs to be raised about 1"-2". Can I use urethane blocks or something??

    there should be a lever on the side of the seat where you can pump the seat up. i know the older models have it, i'm sure the 08s do too

    I wouldnt imagine you being able to put blocks under the seat mount because I dont think its level. But you may be able to raise up the seat from the rails. Take the seat off and take off the rails. Put some blocks in there

    Here's what you do.
    The seat mounts to bolts at each corner, measure the amount of height the bolt is above the nuts. Take the seat out, and hang on to the nuts.
    Go to the hardware store, and look for wide washers that have the same (or slightly larger) interior diameter as the nut. Buy enough of these washers to fill in the bolt height you measure earlier.

    Make sure each bolt gets the same amount of washers, other wise the seat won't sit level.

    Good luck.
