well I would suggest getting new sliders and brackets, if you can afford them!

As for 4 point keeping back seats, I would suggest looking at getting a harness bar custom made (stretches across B pillars where top OEM belts bolt up.) So they have to really crawl in the back, but can still sit there if they can get in.

Harness bar, i got one from CorSportUsa.com. For the 4 point harnesses. Works great, but it is hard to get in the back seats.

You need sparco's brackets/slider if you want it to work properly. I have a Torino passenger seat and that's what I use. Its a tad expensive to get official parts, but you don't want one of the best safety/seat brands in the world to FAIL in an accident because you used some crap bracket. You can order direct from sparco or find them through a 3rd party. I actually got mine through NOPI.

And no you cannot modify the stock bracket.

no... anything from an 01-05 will work.. its 3 parts you need.

the 01-05 specific bracket
the universal adapter
the slider

sparco makes it fairly simple. call them and get all the part numbers you'd need, then shop around for a price. or get a good local shop to help you...

or maybe someone on here can dig it up.

There is an article about using OEM brackets to mount aftermarket seats. But you mod them for your aftermarket seats then your out of OEM brackets in case something happens. My suggestion would be to go with the Sliders from Sparco and getting the Bracket made for our cars.

It goes Bracket>Slider>Seat

I made sure I got the Recaro Sliders and the specific brackets so that everything fits together nicely and is alot safer.

I had a mechanic friend of mine install it... but I would do it professionally if I were you. Also - when you call ShowStoppers, just make sure if you need the third part like I did... or maybe it's not necessary.

Why do it professionally? It takes you about an hour to put seats in. Its sooooo simple, you just unbolt your seats, tilt them back, cut the zipties and unplug the ABS and seat belt clips. Take the seats out, 1 bolt hold the seat belt on so take those off. Now take your sparco seats, bolt the slider to the seat, then bolt the bracket to the seat, now bolt the seat belt back to the bracket and plug the plugs back in. Then bolt back in.

If you can't do that then there is something wrong. A 10 yr old could do it. Why pay someone $100-$200 to install your seats? Doesn't make sense. I have AIM, my icon on all my threads i post. With the sliders and brackets you'll be able to slide them back and forth just like OEM.

I never said anything about not needing the 3 part. I just said that he doesn't need a professional to do it. And i told him to give Chuck a call to get the right stuff.
