Yes, they could be made adjustable for a little wider seats

Even for the passenger seat? Did you transfer the occupancy sensor over to the passenger Recaro?


I tried to find you on instagram but didn't see any matches for @Ruben_86_

I have not used the occupant sensor or the seat belt connectors, I do not know if I go with the passenger airbag always active.

but it doesn't mark me any problem in the dash

The passenger airbag is always on. The seatbelt and occupant sensor is just for the seatbelt alarm.
Anyway, we're going offtopic.

@Ruben_86_ can you please tell me what is the distance between the rear bolt in its lowest position and the floor?
I'd like to know if I can go lower using your brackets.

Hello, when I go to the garage I measure it, it will take a few days.I show you this photo that I have, the seat is very low, lower than the original





I already have the supports in production and orders are allowed on request

Took the measures: with Recaro JDM slider and Recaro JDM side brackets (not that stupid ABE ones), the height is between 13,5 and 14 cm. This is correct, as Recaro sliders are declared to be 5 mm higher from stock, probably because of the seat belt bracket.
I found a very low sliders from Japan, the Kawai Works, but they'll not permit to use the Recaro JDM side stands. But I got an idea from them, I'll try modding the Recaro sliders, perhaps I could get around 2,5 cm more lowering.

Why are ABE sliders stupid? I don't know much about this, and have a set waiting to go on as soon as my seat arrives.

The ABE brackets are absurdly high. The seat will results higher than stock one. Using the JDM brackets I lowered it 2 cm.
I think the best and cheapest solution is to use the custom brackets sold by Ruben 86.

The height of my supports is limited by the shape of the original bar, but for me it is already low, more than the originals
