Universal - Fits All Vehicles
About this Manufacturer:
Procar, based out of Redondo Beach, California, has been making custom seats since 1982. Their longevity can be attributed to a number of things:
*They make a huge assortment of styles, including looks for newer-age sport compact cars all the way to looks for classic muscle cars.
*They make high-quality seats. Unlike some other seats on the market, Procar's seats are not made with rock-bottom manufacturing cost in mind. Rather, they make their seats with a goal of true usability in mind, for both daily driving and racing environments.
*Their seats have all-steel tig-welded frames that are electro-statically coated.
*Their seats use hi-density injection-molded foam for maximum comfort, support, and durability.
About this Product:
Hot Seats for Hot Rods. Equally at home in either a muscle car, pony car, Jeep, or off-road buggy, the Rally features vertical stitching for the vintage look with a pronounced side bolstering for added support under hard cornering.
Racing seats weigh substantially less than factory seats, thereby improving performance of your vehicle. In addition, they increase support and can generally withstand more impact than factory seats. Beyond that, racing seats look a whole lot better than factory seats!
Do racing seats come in pairs?
Unless specifically notated otherwise in our product listings webpage, racing seats are sold individually.
Do racing seats fit in any vehicle?
Racing seats are universal for all vehicles; however, each seat will need to latch to a seat bracket, which is car specific. Make sure there is a bracket available for your vehicle on our website (or by calling us at 1-800-419-1152), or otherwise you can buy a universal bracket and custom fit it to your truck. The way the universal brackets work is they come with a pair of brackets that have a multiple 'holes' to be able to interface with the bottom of the racing seat. By using the custom bracket and applying it to the seat first before installing it, you can also be sure that the brackets will match the width of the seats.
Do you need any extra accessories to install racing seats, such as brackets or sliders?
You can't install a racing seat without a seat bracket to mount it to your floorboard. Some seats are rail mounted and some are mounted using side brackets. Seat sliders can be purchased as well to adjust the seat separately. If there are no rails or brackets for your vehicle, Sparco makes a universal seat rail that can be modified to work with any racing seat.
How do you install racing seats?
There are two types of seats. The first is a side mount, which uses brackets that are installed to the floor and to the side of the seat. The second type is one that sits on top of rails and bolt in from the bottom. After purchasing needed parts, simply unbolt your factory rails and install the new ones.
I drive my car a lot. How do I know which of these seats is the most comfortable? Will all these seats be more comfortable than my factory seats?
In general, most racing seats are more firm that factory seats, since most racing seats are made with performance and lateral support in mind. So that means that while they won't necessarily be stiff, they're certainly not designed specifically to be cushy for long road trips either. That said, there are things you can do to maximize comfort with aftermarket seats. A lot of seat comfort has to do with proper adjustment, and this applies to factory seats as well. Always try different positions, along with various steering wheel adjustments, to find out which combination works best for your body type and height. Your knees should be slightly bent when touching the floor, without having to stretch to reach the pedals. The seat back should put your shoulders behind your hips, ideally so that your upper torso is at a 100-110 degree angle to your thighs. If your seat has other fine adjustments such as height or lumbar, play around with them until your seating position feels just right.
Can I use my factory seat belts with aftermarket seats?
In most cases, it is entirely possible to maintain your factory seat belts with aftermarket seats. On some vehicles, however, the seat belt buckle is integrated into the seat itself, so it may be necessary in those cases to use aftermarket harnesses that have been properly installed according to the harness manufacturer's instructions.
