Anyone know how to make EB/ED seats stay in the lowest position?

All 3 of the drivers seats I have, refuse to stay down and Im stumped on how to make them lock up.

Mine used to do the same thing took some fidling with the adjuster to make it work again but every now and then it would decide to spring back up so I completely f****d the adjuster so that when i sat on it it was in the low position

second the suggestion of welding the bastard in one position.

Otherwise if you just want it on low all the time remove the return springs.

You guys are crazy. Cutting and welding s**t.
Im 6'9". Don't tell me about the roof. Haha.
Get a thick long zip tie.
Push the lever to the lowest position. You can make a loop from over the lever to the bottom of the seat. Tie it tight.
Put 2 if your a big guy.

This also works for almost any position. You just don't tighten it up as much and re-adjust the seat up to desired position.
