I would like to raise the height of my toilets by placing them on a 6 inch platform. What is the best way to connect ot the existing waste pipes?

Here's a thought you might want to consider. Hospitals use an "extension" that sits on top of the existing commode. That could be a lot easier than putting stuff under it.

better of just buying an ada toilet or you can get that 5 inch thick seat for around 50 bucks.

just my opinion i'm not trying to knock your idea.
