My biggest issue with my spring seat was the terrible mount that came with it, one of those cheap eBay ones.. So last week I sat down with template and AutoCAD and designed a new one.. While I was at it I lasercut some new tank raiser brackets as well. Everything is stainless steel now so no more rust..
Waiting for my new seat but the old one sits about 1"1/2 lower in the front now, level with the rear tank mount.
I did similar by cutting down a mount bracket from La Rosa designs. ultimately it became simply a wire cover and rear perch for the springs. I used a builders bracket from Lucid Kustoms for the front mount. I just wanted a springer that sat nice and low without giving MoCo another 500 bux.
