Damn, I didn't think those Evo seats would fit so geart. There's many local Evos with swapped seats. I should inquire about them to see if I can find a set.

I vote they look geart as well! I gotta ask, what do you think about the seats on a whole, as far as driving? Good support, lateral and all? Comfy? Decent drop, same seating height, or higher? They look very sharp and subtle, yet a very nice look too.

I'm interested in the seating height as well. I want to get lower than stock, but generally need to recline as well to fit under the top so these might work well for me.

there a good seat support is good there comfy they sit higher and also do not go as far back as the stock seats. if you are taller then 6 foot i would not doo.

Super bummer they sit higher. How much would you say? Think there is a way to work with the home made bracketry to fix some of that? It's good to know they work out alright, just I sit at about 6 foot even, but I still need even the stock seats lower.

i will try to see if my friend who took the pic for me has any of the bars. the bars only go across from one slider to the next.

cool. hows the recline on it, if any at all? Does it still slide freely, because it sure looks really cramped or the side bolster may prevent any movement of the seat.

the seat slides all the way up but because of my roll bar being welded to my seat belt loop it will not go all the way back. to recline the seat you have to go up then recline then slide back.
