Instructions for 'Primary seat' - bolt studs installed- Installation.

This it has been designed to lower the driver seat some 3 inches buy eliminating the height adjustment mechanism.  This will allow the seat to mount directly to the seats slide rail brackets.

1.  The first step will be to unbolt the four corner bolts from the seat floor.  Next detach the seat belt electrical connector then remove the seat from the car.

2.  Unbolt the height adjustment section of the seat bracket assembly on both sides of the seat slide. This will be three nuts and bolts per rail (6 in all).  Note these original nuts and bolts can be reused.

3.  Next you will need to cut off the six rivets that attach the rails.  To do this use an air powered or electric angle cutter disc to cut off the rivet heads.  Once the heads are off you may need to use a punch to knock out the remaining rivet bodies.  The six bolts we provided will be to replace the rivets.

4.  Your kit comes to you with three 1/4 thick solid aluminum )red) brackets for each side of the seat. Attach the thee brackets to the seat slide using the flange style
 8.125 mm bolts provided.  Do this to both sides of the seat slide brackets.

5.  Flip the seat slide over and align the brackets with the actual seat bolt studs exposed on the bottom of the seat. Set the six lock washers over each stud and attach using the six 5/16-24 nuts provided and tighten the entire assembly. You may need to tap the brackets a little to get them to align over the studs properly. Once this is done simply reinstall the seat by reattaching the seat belt harness and bolt at the original floor mount locations and tighten.  

NOTE:   You may restore your seat back to stock at any time.  However, you will replace the rivets with bolts.  The seat will then work normally.

NOTE:  You will want to measure the studs from center to center on your floor board and ensure that before you tighten down the seat lowering kit brackets that the width between the seat sliders is the same as it is between the floor studs so that your seat will slide.

Instructions for the 'Alternate seat' no studs installed - installation

1.  After you have removed the seat lowering mechanism bolt on the three brackets at the factory threaded locations using the factory bolts. Two of these will sit closer to each other and the last one will be on the end.

2. With all six brackets bolted firmly in there correct positions flip the seat slid over and set it on top of the seat base.

3.  Using the six flange bolts provided in your kit place four of them through the excising holes on the seat base and bolt together using the 8mm 1.25 nuts and lock washers provided.

4.  Drill a 5/16 hole through the two remaining  bracket locations and bolt the bracket at these locations also and then reinstall the seat.

NOTE:   You may restore your seat back to stock at any time.  However, you will replace the rivets with bolts.  The seat will then work normally.

NOTE:  You will want to measure the studs from center to center on your floor board and ensure that before you tighten down the seat lowering kit brackets that the width between the seat sliders is the same as it is between the floor studs so that your seat will slide.
