seats

Im looking for a race seat for my svt nothing to crazy or exspensive but a seat that will let me sit lower in the car than the stock seats. Does anyone have any suggestions for what kind of seat I should buy?

I bought some seats off craigslist. They're not bad, but a no name brand.

I had to use Weapon R seat rails but had to have some more metal welded in to match up with the seat holes. They sit higher than stock seats though, just to let you know.

I wouldn't do it 'cause you lose your side airbag. With the air bag light on your fronts won't work either.

No your able to take the seats out and put some kind of transmitter on that sends a signal back as if the airbags are still there. Not sure what its called but ill look it up and let you know.

just wire ur drivers side up. basically, just complete the circuit and you will be fine. i've done it w/ my zx3. and for the passengers side, i unplug and plug in the seatbelt everytime i have a passenger. (I use a 6 pt. harness too)
