Aftermarket Seats

Does anyone know a good place to buy aftermarket seats for the Focus? I found some on Focussport but they say I need to buy brackets for it too? That whole section of the site is really really confusing. Anyone know a good place to buy a seat that bolts right up? Or what I need to put em in?

Well, it is not very likely that you will find bolt on seats for the focus. Most afrtermarket seats require mounting brackets.

I have Corbeau's in my Mach 1. Had to order the track adapters when I ordered the seats. Very easy to do. Mach 1 seats were great but I needed the leg/head room. The corbeaus sit much lower and farther back. Thats a BIG deal in the mustang @ 6'3".

I put in a set of recaro style, and needed aftermarket brackets. Purchased brackets from a local speed shop.
