Best Steering Wheel with Saab Seats

Post by mshaw1980 »

So I have trial fitted my saab seat although I still have the middle vw runner to remove which will drop approx 10mm off the height. Noticed I will also need a gearstick extension as it is a bit far to reach now and my shoulder is bad enough from years of weight training without making it worse by overreaching. But....

The seat height is good for me at 6"1 but my 27" thighs prevent me from lifting my leg back enough to operate the clutch properly. Which steering wheel can I fit that is smaller without modification will allow me to drive in the lovely comfortable seats?

Cheers :ok

Fitted manual Saab seats to my bus, removed vw rails to get as low as possible..
Can operate pedals but not by much..just enough
I’m 6’3 and the wrong side of 16st
The seats are so much better though..
A smaller wheel would be better, but that means adding power steering..

I have electric power steering so thats not an issue. Would highly recommend for parking situations
