Well there is no way to go lower than stock if you want sliding/reclining seats unless you go with a custom made bracket. Every bracket made for the car will result in a higher seating position without a fixed seat. I got recaro seats, sliders and brackets. They sit higher but it's bearable.

I agree with DarkZ03. When I investigated seat replacement for my 350z, all options resulted in a higher seat position. New seats using the existing seat rails sat higher; new seats with new seat rails sat higher. The 350z’s OEM seat rails are very low and tight to the floor.

I decided to keep the original seat rails and place new covers on the existing seats.

Lol, leave it to me to not research and waste $600 on a mounting solution that didn't work for me, then spend another $700 ish to get the proper stuff from Recaro Japan!
