sparco makes some seat bases that you can use and you will need a set of sliders for the seat you use. Most seats are sold by themselves and come with no mounting hardware.

Most new seats come with sliders, the brackets you will have to buy about $100.00. And yes you can use stock seatbelts.
ahhh nice... good looking out... any sliders u recommend?

I have another question to add here. If you were to use harness with your racing seats. How would you connect them in a xb? well that is where would you connect the back straps?

I want to get some but I need to get them wide enough to fit me. I want a style that reclines that you can also use both setups with. I.E. you seatbelt or harnesses. Anyone have any sugestions on which are some good seats to get?

If your gonna use some Harness seat belts, you will need to get a harness bar. i actually have one for sale so PM if your interested. As for seats, i dunno your body size, but Sparco Torino 2's are adjustable and quite comfortable and can fit most ppl's body size.

when i had racing seats I used sparco harness. they were 4 point and had the option of the fith belt between the legs.

as far as seats go adjustable corbeau makes some that are not to badly priced. Of course you can go more expensive and get sparco, recaro, or bride.

It just depends on how big or small you are.

Me i'm still trying to find a good wide seat thats adjustable. i've just been to lazy to really look hard lol.

I doubt the holes will match up. I am wondering the same thing myself. Maybe you can drill some new holes intto the sliders to match up with the stock brackets somehow? if you find out any more info on that post it up. i'll do the same. I think I am going to get some seats soon so this info would be help full.
