|sleepyboy||You could but they will break, that's what I had were some seats from ebay. They were real nice the first month then they started breaking and eventually I had to shove stuff behind the seats to keep them upright. If your going buy seats it's going to cost money and trust me if your going to daily drive them you want them to last cause you'll just spend money of buying another set of seats later down the road.|

Now, I hate to be "that guy," but my wifes car is a budget daily driver and although Corbeau seats are NICE, they're a little much for her car.... Are most seats universal mount? Could I JUST buy the brackets and then some ebay or amazon seats for cheaper and mount the cheap seats on to the good bracket?

|NotReal||I know corbeau makes bracket and slider set for the 00-09 focus. CFM has them listed for 105 a piece. But for anything newer i'm not sure who.|

|Robby04ZX5||Don't feel bad JP, I just read through this and I'm interested too! My wife's focus REALLY needs new seats and this past weekend we checked out a 2015 Mustang 5.0 a buddy of mine just got. She feel in LOVE with the seats in it so I'd love to get her some mild "racing" seats but retain the stock seating height, ESPECIALLY since her car doesn't have a tilt steering wheel.|

|JPfocus23||Real late on this. But what seat rails did you get? I can't find any.|

Finally created an account here after browsing for many years to chime in on this thread.
How tall are you guys who say you "got used to it"? Not to be sarcastic.
I have a Recaro SRD with Recaro sliders on a Planted bracket in my 2000 ZX3 and it sits extremely low. When I say low i'm talking about anyone under 5 foot 10 (my height) couldn't even drive the car. My nose might be up to the top of the steering wheel (column lowered all the way), and the dash bezel probably another inch above the steering wheel. Tough to do right turns into driveways, forget doing an autocross, or looking at your face in the rear view mirror lol

|deanjohnson7||How low were the sparco seats when you had them mounted on the sparco rails? I'm looking to gain some headroom since my svt has a sunroof and I would like to take it to some track days. With the stock seats and my seating position, I've only got about 1" of headroom, not nearly enough for a helmet to fit.|
