Default racin seats

ok i know there is nothing fast about a 4 cylinder ranger but the seats i have in mine are really ratty and smell like cigs i found a pair of racing seats on this site called www.HyperAutoParts.com it says they are universal and they come with a mounting bracket does this mean they bolt right in (yeah right nothing bolts right in) or does the bracket on the factory seats bolt to the bracket that comes with the racin seats.

thanks

don't buy cheap racing seats

1. the cloth will be ruined in 3 months of use
2. If the cloth is colored, high chance it will transfer onto your clothes (not sure about this brand but I have seen it from similar seats off of ebay)
3. padding will more uncomfortable then ever with in 3 months
4. they don't have brackets for a ranger so new ones will need to be fabbed up so fit the "universal" sliders

Ok so I have spw seats in my truck here is how I installed them

1. Original 60/40 seats
2. New seats came with sliders on them
3. Pull out old seats
4. There are two mounting brackets per side of the seats of 60/40
5. The factory seat brackets/sliders bolt to the bottom of the 60/40 seats unbolt them now you will have two sets of sliders and mounting brackets but not done yet!
6. The factory mounting brackets are riveted to the sliders drill out those rivets and now you should have only two sets of brackets
7. Now that you have just brackets the first and last rivet holes on each of them should line up with the holes on the sliders of new seats (may need to make the rivet holes alittle bigger depending on the drilbit used to drill out the rivets in the first place), simply get new nuts and bolts and put bolt the factory mounting brackets to the sliders.
8. Bolt the seats back into the truck in the factory location and your done.

I found that with the way I just explained the seats stay at factory height and it's just like the stock seats but way comfier
