Default What seats/brackets/sliders are everyone using?

We have Corbeau A4s on their brackets/sliders, and they sit about 1.5-2" too high. We need sliders because two people drive/will drive the car.

They fit well otherwise.

1) What is everyone else using?

2) How shitty was the install?

3) Price?

4) How well do they fit?

I use older MoMo Starts on stock sliders. I bought the seats specifically because I knew you could make stock brackets work with them.

My first sliders where modified oem. I wanted to sit lower so I later made some out of flat bar stock. For any seat making your own is probably the best bet.

In all seriousness though. Kirkeys mounted to steel plates. I have a slot and 3 holes. I can move it up and down that way, course it's not as easy to adjust just by pulling a lever. But it works.

Marrad seat from Goodwin Racing. Crazy money, but I sit several inches lower and its on an OEM style slider. Install in 4 bolts in the stock location.

I also have Marrad seat from Goodwin Racing. Pricey, but not more than a Sparco EVO w/ slider & base. Bolts in stock location. Seat bottom is below the sliders, about 1/2 inch off the floor. This is a compromise seat, works for track w/ proper harness holes, but not the largest bolsters. Works to DD with the 2 in. cushion. If you're using this for W2W, it will require a brace. It is NOT FIA certified.
