Mods like lifts, oversized tires, or brake kits are items that CAN be done as a mod (because you are installing parts to REPLACE existing parts, not add to them). It would be a different story if you tried modifying a brake outside its designated design (as is the case with raising the back seat so the locking pin/latch sits higher.)
You are lifting the seat, but it still latches. You lift a truck, but it still drives. Both alter how they will react during a crash or loss of control. A dirty lawyer could find a way to prove that by lifting a vehicle, it caused it to be more top heavy and thus more prone to flip over during loss of control. I can't come up with a good reason for a seat back to cause injury...
