    I hate my stock leather seats.. Way too uncomfortable, mushy, and the leathers seen better days.. I like the Corbeau LG1's.. Who has them? How's the fitment? Do they make you sit lower than the stock seats or higher? I'd use the stock seatbelts with them, i don't think I want harnesses.

    Same seat chassis as the ones my buddy had in his 5.0 if I remember right. I don't know about any mods he had to do (if any) to make them fit but they do sit a little lower than the stock seats. Not because of the frame but because there's less padding height.

    Here's a pic of my neighbor taking it for a ride, he's about 6' - 6'1" but leaning forward. My buddy (owns the car) is in the passenger seat and I know he's right at 6' so you can see he's a little lower than where stock would be.

    I think I like those better than my CR1s and they're less expensive.
    Corbeau sells harnesses that act like a retractable.

    I just bought a set, posted a pic of them on IG earlier today. Just a tad lower is all, seating wise. The tiny drop in height is not that noticeable to me and I'm short. I've only driven 5 miles in them and they are phenomenal! no more sliding around, no mushyness, they hold you in just as they are supposed to! The side bolsters are smaller than on the CR1's so I feel they are more street/daily driver friendly. So you don't have to climb over the side bolster to get in or out.

    Took a left turn at midnight with no traffic at 45mph and I was expecting to feel the full force of mustang body roll slam me into the door lol, and nope not at all!

    I'm glad this post was started. I'm going to buy these seats in leather in the Fall of 2014 and was worried about seat height like everyone else. Knowing that this isn't a problem, I don't know if I can wait until the Fall of 2014, I may have to buy these things now because the pictures of these seats look amazing.
