my seat is too high :(

2001 Concorde LXi, power leather seats. I'm just over 6', and with the seat all the way back and down, my head is only a few inches from the headliner. It has a moonroof too. Is this normal? My seat seems to work in every direction. I saw a mod for moving the seat back an inch or so and will do that, but what about down? I feel like I'm looking through the windshield too high up??? I don't have a 20" inseam and the rest torso either, lol! Any suggestions or anyone else feel the same?

Do the Dougie-Fresh seat track mod.

I've tried that, does work but feels odd when it seems like I'm looking out at the right height. I know this is strange, but this is the first car I've felt this in. My '93 Concorde was great! Not sure what changed??? It's like part of the colored band at the top of the windshield is in my line of view. I need to duck down to see the traffic lights if I'm first in line, lol! Is it only me? It really seems like the seat should move back more and lower much more.

Is that drilling the holes to move the seat back an extra inch or two?

Yes. I did it too, it was a great help, but mostly for leg room. I'm 6' 4" and I've never had an issue with head to roof interference, my eye line is right in the middle of the window.

Strange, I guess when I pop the seat out to drill it I'll have a good look over to make sure it's moving the full range of motion. Every bit helps! Thanks for the feedback
