You need the correct seat rails. SickSpeed carries them IIRC Sean.

You need seat brackets to fit those sliders. I have a custom made set I've had for years if your interested I can get you some pics. Most brackets cost about 100 bucks per bracket the last time I checked. A lot of folks never consider the cost of brackets when getting seats.

Yup, I was trying to sell mine but no one bought them. I was lucky to find these back in the day.

Yeah I have the same seats actually. Wife got them for me but didn't notice they didn't come with brackets. I think I've got everything else. Just need a Set of brackets. Or an example so I can make my own.

How did you get around the stock seat airbag issue?
