    everyone says you can use your stock sliders and drill some new holes in them. so hopefully that will work. if not i will just have to modify untill something works :)

    The stock ones dont work at all on the summit seats. I have the black ones in my car now and hate them. I wish I would have seen this a while ago. They look good for the price but the bolsters that are on the back rest will wear through quickly. I have had mine less than a year drive the car about 2 times a month and the bolsters have worn through. I welded tabs to the brackets that the seat came with and made them work. The seats dont slide the best but it works. Also the padding in the ass of the seat is thin they dont make good for long car rides. If you want pics i can get you some out of my car.

    I hate to say it but its true. I wish I would saved for better seats. If you have a cage in your car there even worse cause where you slide down into the seat will wear though to. They are a cheap alternative and will work for a year or so. I hope you have better luck with them than i did.

    they work great for me, I cant speak on long term lasting. I RARELY drive my car, it will be an antique before these seats wear out.

    I'm sorry to hear about the way your seats did, but I'm still planning on getting a set, I'm taking mine to a upholstery shop and having a little work done to mine. I'm getting suede put down the center of the seats, so while im at It I will have them look at the sides to see if they should be re-stuffed with some kind of other material.

    I dont plan on having it more than another year to year and a half anyway.........its Terminator time by then
