TALK TO ME ABOUT SEAT RAILS

Japanese Performance - - SEAT GUIDE -

WHEN IT COMES TO FIT­TING A SET OF AFTER­MAR­KET SEATS TO YOUR CAR THERE ARE TWO MAIN OP­TIONS: BASEMOUNTING AND SIDE-MOUNT­ING. MOST RE­CLIN­ING SEATS FEA­TURE BASEMOUNTING, WHICH AL­LOWS YOU TO AT­TACH A SET OF SLID­ING SUBFRAMES TO THE BOT­TOM OF THE SEAT THAT AL­LOW YOU TO AD­JUST THE SEAT BACK AND FORTH LIKE AN OEM SEAT. FOR MANY BUCKET SEATS AND IN MO­TOR­SPORT AP­PLI­CA­TIONS, THIS IS NOT PER­MIT­TED. IN THIS CASE SIDEMOUNTS ARE USED AS THEY PRO­VIDE A STRONGER, MORE RIGID MOUNT­ING. THEY ALSO AL­LOW THE SEAT TO BE PO­SI­TIONED MUCH LOWER THAN A BASE MOUNTED SEAT, LOW­ER­ING THE CEN­TRE OF GRAV­ITY AND GIV­ING MORE HEADROOM FOR A HEL­MET. THE DOWN­SIDE TO SIDE-MOUNT­ING IS THAT THEY DO NOT OF­FER ANY

AD­JUST­MENT AFTER FIT­TING, SO YOU NEED TO GET THE PO­SI­TION­ING SPOT ON AT THE POINT OF IN­STAL­LA­TION
