sorry i found out what clare at snyder and andrew rossmann said
combined basicaly.. but today i decided to just mod the seat runners..
i basicaly took the part that bolts to the car and turned them around
and drilled a new hole and removed the rubber washer on the screw that
moves the seat to move the seat back a total of 7 inches.. it now
touches the back seat in full back position

From what I'm told there are two different columns used, and one can
come with or without the lever. Without the lever you can apparently
loosen a nut and adjust the height. I have not tried it on my '96, as
it seems to be at a pretty good height - but it IS higher than some
others I've seen, so the original owner may well have had it raised.

The Contour/Mystique were supposed to have a tilt column available
when they came out in 1995, but there were design and/or safety issues,
and it was dropped. It didn't become available until late in the '96
From what I remember of my '95 Mystique, the column was bolted into a
cross member under the dash. I think some people made adapter plates
that let them offset it.
