Default Seat Adjustment, IDEAS NEEDED!

i have the manual seat levers in my car and everyone that rides in it says that i need to do something because they can see squat! So i was wondering what i should to to raise the seat, so they can see, and stop complaining.

So far i thought of three things to do, (thoughts on if they'll work)

1. perminately raise the seat with some rubber washers maybe 1'' to 2'' tall, i know ill probably need new bolts, but thats not a big concern.

2. is there a manual lever system like the one on the drivers side that either ford or i can install to raise the seat manually (i like this one the best, but idk if they make one for the passenger side?)

3. just up-grade the whole thing and put in electric seat things, i know, or am almost positive i can do this, but i think major wiring is in order, i think to the fuse box and ground, maybe ford can do this too.

So what should i do? Should i do something else?

By spacing the seat up, the bolt and the welded nut in the floorpan are taking the stress in an accident. Impact will either rip the bolt out of the floor or snap the bolt. This could be a very bad situation when the airbag deploys. Invest in the factory option and be safe--- pass power seat.

here's a passenger side kit that a sponsor from another site has been trying to move, but its still kind of pricey at $450. Also not sure if would work on an 06, but might worth a call to see...
