I put some Corbeau seats in my truck, I used the brackets that I bought from them and they went in easy. Then I say on them and was in the roof. So I ended up making a bracketfor the stock sliders but then could not move the seat because the slider has to move up and there was no room between them and the seat. So another bracket that lifted them some on the stock sliders and YES success! They are now the right height and are super comfortable but I sure wish I would not have spent the money on their mounts. I can't send them back because I cut them to see if I could drop them first. OH well live and learn.

Seat mounting is one of the biggest challenges I have in putting a car together. Getting everything to come out properly is a good exercise in fabrication and planning. If someone would come out with a kit that included adjustability on height with a sliding track they would sell well I would think.

On my '35 Chevy coupe I used seat tracks from a '94 Chevy truck with the mounts cut down to 2" and rewelded, built a perimeter frame for the original bench seat, and attached the tracks. It seems to work well and amazingly enough it came out correctly.

There is a product in the Yogi's catalogue called "seat risers" that I am about to order for installation of Sienna bucket seats into my 39 Olds. Looks like you mount the bottom seat bolts to these brackets whose height is adjustable at both front and back to get the height as well as the angle where you want it without welding fixed mountings.

Hi JohnTN,

Yes, I've seen the seat riser product. They are a fixed position and do not allow for ease of adjustability. Once bolted in place they are there. A product offering the adjustable installation of seat risers with an adjustable track would be beneficial to many builders. Maybe even safer as well.

Hope the seat risers work well for you.

The Yogi seat risers are adjustable in height at each end, but I don't think they slide forward or back once bolted down.

The part number on their site (Yogisinc.com) is SR200 or SR400.

Still haven't received mine yet.

Now I dont know anything about seat moungin and have never done it, but couldnt you get a sliding mechanism from any car in a scrap yard? Then you buy the riser mechanism kit. Make a base or a plate that welds/bolts onto the sliding unit and bolt the riser unit onto that. Then you could slide back and forth, and go up and down....just and idea.

Here is what I did to mount 80s Buick split bench power seats in my '53 Chevy pickup. Will cover the platform in carpet covered 1/8" plywood panels.
