I have measured both and found them to be different, but until I measure several of them I can't say that it is by design.

Taller seat is the route I'm going to take with my GS, when I get around to it. I think that's the only practical way to solve some of its fundamental ergonomic problems.

That shim was in the right place but WOW did it self-destruct. Pretty hard to do a real autopsy now, as you have no idea what the original thickness of it was.
