Default I need some help with my bucket seats

I got some fairly new buckets seats looks like the ebay kind, I used my stock rails and sliders and now my head is in line with my roll cage. My only thought is to try and take out some pads so any advice would help. And I and a noob. Thanks

No pics = fail.

You can either lower your butt in the seat by removing foam, or lower the seat by changing how you mount it, or both.

Fabricate new rails to make it sit lower or modify your existing rails (i.e. lowering the rears) so they sit lower?

If it's more trouble than it's worth then maybe the best thing to do is sell the seats (hopefully more than you got it for).
