    Was relatively easy. Just took off the side cover and then used a grinder to cut off the little nut that is clamped on the thread. Took about 30 mins total for both sides. Doesn't really do too much, but now they are more comfortable if I have to take a nap in my truck. :D

    yeah, once i got down closer to that rod, i used a dremmel tool to cut it the rest of way. so as to not damage the threads.

    that's good that you didn't mess it up. i was anxious to get it done, but had to keep reminding myself to not rush it. knowing my luck, i would grind right through that rod and then be totally screwed.

    I did this to my driver's side about a year ago. It makes a world of difference when taking a nap. I'll get around to the passenger side one day.
