Default Fitment of these Corbeau A4 seats from Corvette Mods.

Do these fit? I'm not a huge guy...5'11" and 180lbs, so I should fit in the seats. Does anybody have experience with this particular seat in a 1990 or newer C4? I have a 93.

I have the leather A4s in my 88, yes they fit, it was also a PITA to get them in there and I'm not taking them out ever again. I basically had to bolt the rears down, then beat on the seat to make it go all the way down to bolt the fronts. Its wider than the floor at the height it needs to be installed. There are pictures in one of my albums.

The brackets underneath the seat need to be removed and flipped to the other side. Drivers' side needs to go on Passenger seat, that is. The nuts that hold the front down on the floor next to the transmission were pretty much impossible to get on.

Oh and never buy from CorvetteMods, they have had numerous issues. Find them somewhere else.

Yeah i looked into these. Other than the slots for a 5 point, pretty much no benefit over a stock seat.

weighs just as much (you can convert your stock power seats to manual sliders if you want to save a few lbs).

I also looked into some real light race seats of a different model (to save weight),
but then i thought :

whats stopping me from simply removing the passenger seat (for racing) to save 30 lbs and not lighten my wallet?

I have the 93, and if you are skinny (as it sounds you are), the 84-93 sport seat is a pretty good seat
