I'm installing a set of Corbeau seats (GTS IIs, for the curious) in my '04 Xtra Cab with stock buckets, and I'm having a bit of an issue. The Corbeau seat bracket doesn't marry up nicely with the stock seat belt buckle - which is bolted to the seat frame on the stock seats.
Basically, the seat bracket just has a tapped hole on a tab meant for buckle mounting, whereas on the stock seats there's a threaded stud welded to the seat frame with a nut holding the buckle on the frame. So I have a nut from the stock hardware, and no bolt or stud on the new bracket. I picked up some hardware to fit the stock nut, but of course, it doesn't match the tapped threads in the tab on the bracket.
Before I drill out the hole in the bracket (see below), has anyone else out there installed a set of Corbeau's? And how did you address the seatbelts?
(I suspect since the seatbelt buckle is integral to the seat frame in the 1st Gen, that the bracket is designed to be used with the aftermarket 3-pt seatbelts Corbeau sells.
I did talk to Corbeau this morning, and they assured me that the bracket should be fine with the stock hardware - but since they make brackets for EVERYTHING out there, I can't really fault them for not being able to specifically speak in detail about the Tacoma brackets.)
