The seat is a bit more complex, first I move the rudder pedals forward an inch, if that won't fix it station one goes forward an inch plus another inch on the pedals. If the pilot STILL can't make that fit the wing moves forward an inch as well as seat back moves back an inch. Only had to do that once, guy was 6'5" and long in the legs.
You CAN lower the seat by building the alum straps longer as well. Just be careful you cleat the torque tube. For the longer legged guys consider building to full 24" width to make entry easier
