You're going to sadly find out that raising only the back of the seat is going to make the headrest even more forward bent, you have not thought that out at all.
You better start thinking about the front mounts too, they WILL be changing in angularity when you lift the back up.
And the entire thing is unsafe as you have modified the OEM seat restraint, at the very least you MUST have grade bolt materials...
I agree with amc49, I can't see how tilting it forward without raising the front would help in the slightest for comfort.
I would suggest you try to find a salvage yard or pick-n-pull near you that has the six-way manual seat some of the higher-trim level cars had. Those ones can be raised and lowered IIRC (can someone with the fancier seats confirm that?) so if you get one of those bolted in you would have the adjustment you need to be comfortable and still have a 100% stock/OEM seat installed properly so no potential safety or legal issue.
