But without a corresponding spacer at the front seat mounts, this has to affect the seat angle, tipping it forward, correct?

And it doesn't change anything about the seat height "slipping" problem except make the lowest seat position 1" higher than it is without the spacers, correct?

I guess this is for people who aren't 6'1"? GLWS I dropped by because I never heard for such a thing.

Correct, but I would say it more levels the seat cushion than really tipping it forward. I think mine are 1.25" high and it feels more like the angle of a bench seat instead of a bucket.

Correct.

As stated here it doesn't really change the angle of the seat with the 1" spacers in the rear. They don't correct the sinking seat, but they do give your seat more vertical lift for those of us that find the seat doesn't go high enough.

We did this mod some time ago and found it makes a huge difference, for the better. With the slightly more vertical sitting position it feels more like a truck and less than a sedan. I come in around 6'3" and still have about the same leg room and roof clearance as before.

Interested in the spacer kit but wanted to clarify something. The spacer kits only go in the rear not in the front mounts? So there are only two spacer mounts not 4 per seat?

Correct, go in the rear only. 1 set is 2 spacer, 2 bolts, 2 washers.
