Default Seats are too high

Hello, i hope you can help me. I got a coup ej6. It is build for track days with sports seats and a roll cage. The Seats are mounted on buddyclub sliders, only the Seat are way to high now. What is the best way to mount them, or does Some one have advise or pictures? Greetings Nick

They can be mounted on side and bottom. They are now standing on a buddyblub frame

Side mount them and get them as low as possible.

If that's still not low enough you'll have to get some custom brackets and hard mount the rails, no sliders.

Do you really need any more help?

Get some pics, as well as some more details of your particular seat arrangement, and you will get some better information.

These rails?

Leave the rear bolts at the lowest setting and angle the front up 1-2 positions and see if you sitting more 'reclined' makes a difference.

If you need it lower than what these offer you'll have to go with a custom seat bracket and probably a fixed position.
