Default Evo Recaro seat height compared to stock.

Sourced out some Leather Recaros from a 2013 Evo MR. Just wondering if anyone could comment on if they sit lower than the stock seats in a GR. Planning on using Planted Technology brackets.

I am 6'8 so head room is already at a premium.

I cant speak for the same years, but I have Leather Evo 9 Recaros in my GD (GG wagon), and they sit a hell of a lot lower than my stock seats did.

SuBK what did you pay to install them? I'd love to have some lower seats (I'm 6'5")

I didn't pay anyone.. I installed them myself. They are recaro seats, so you just need to get Recaro brackets made for Imprezas (based on your year obviously). Remove the Evo brackets and attach the Impreza brackets and they bolt right in to the factory spots. I picked the brackets up from www.speedwaremotorsports.com

I have EVO X Recaro seats in my GD with wedge brackets, and the height is fine (the brackets are adjustable). Sits a little lower compared to stock, but I like that.
