Greyhawk Driver's Seat Arm Rest

Anybody w/ a newer Greyhawk feel like the driver's arm rest is angled too high? I feel like when I lower it, it should go a little further then it does. I can't find anywhere to adjust it either.

Oddball question I know.

oddly, mine feels too low and think its broken. I'm going to take the seat apart this winter and see if there is any adjustment. Last one I did like this there is a simple metal pin and is usually not adjustable. Will see.

I'm having trouble getting my seat to go low enough to drive comfortably while not on cruise control. I'm not that short!

It's definitely too high, IMO. The whole seat is pretty uncomfortable--my wife and I hate the headrests, especially--they seem to push your head too far forward. Wish I could replace these seats with something more comfortable.

I'm having the same issue. As well as the armrest issue. When we test drove the rig, the armrest was WAY out of line. I was able to push it down with some force, so now it's reasonable, but still a little "up" for my ultimate comfort.

I've never owned an 8-way adjustable seat I couldn't get to feel comfortable, so it's inconceivable to me how I can't get this one right. BUT, on our last trip, I had DW give me a towel to put behind my lower back, and that solved almost all of the problems I was having. The seat still rides too high for my comfort, but it's MUCH more manageable now. So I ended up picking up a Samsonite Lumbar pillow from Amazon. I haven't tried it yet, but I have high hopes. With the towel behind my lower back, it was a SIGNIFICANT improvement in driving comfort. The immediate relief and comfort I felt was truly unbelievable.

Push it down ... meaning you sorta 'bent' whatever is behind all the pleather and cushioning?

I want to try it, but I'm afraid I'll break it off.

No, it didn't feel like anything bent or was damaged. It felt more like it was bolted on tightly, and the bolt/nut rotated inside whatever it was bolted to (the seat frame probably).

That being said, I did try to push it further, and I pushed pretty hard, but it wouldn't move any more. Like you, I didn't really give it the "beans" because I was afraid I would break something. It's really not that bad where it is, I kind of like a higher armrest on that side anyway.

My bigger problem is the door side. The armrest molded into the door panel is too low, and I don't like riding with my elbow on the bottom of the window opening. I usually end up laying my arm across the top of the door panel up against the window. I know they make attachments for door panel armrests, but I haven't shopped those yet.
