Yeah, the pads are kind of overkill. They are not there for positioning so much as low back support. I don't really need more recline, I just need lots of support in the small of my back right above the waist, which is where the seat curves away.

The boom is shortened up until the FD cable attachment point. I took off about 4.5 inches.

I am going to try a cut up pool noodle for low back support rather than the pad sandwich tonight.
