How could I lower my stock seats? Would side mount seat rails fit on stock seats? When ever I switch back to stock seats I'd like them to be lower since I've become used to sitting lower in the car. I figured it would be the same as any bucket seat or would I not be able to get the seat any lower

The 94-97 seats did not have a height adjustment knob and the 98-01 seats did.
I would recommend the OP to test out some 98-01 seats first since the swap is really easy and the seats are usually cheap and still oem.

If you really just want to use the stock stock seats, I highly doubt you'll be able to lower them more than a half inch w/o doing major modification down there.

Problem with that...

94-97 seats sit LOWER than 98-01 seats with the knob turned all the way to low.

I have both types. I was like *woah* when I got the 98-01 seats because they sat higher. I turned the knobs to minimum and you still sit higher. They raised the seat to make room for the knob mechanism. Kind of counter productive honestly.

Learn something new every day. You could always use Del Sol seats.

the only way i could see them sitting any lower is if you remove the slide mechanism and make a custom bracket (with a customer seat position for yourself only of course)

Del sol seats are by far the lowest stock seats I've ever sat in. I put Del Sol cushions on 94-97 rails so they bolted directly in. I really liked them. Wish they matched other stuff in the car though.

I concur with the Del Sol seats... they site noticeably lower than 94-97 seats....

I have a 99, the seats seem really high and uncomfortable. Where is this lowering knob you speak of? Me and a buddy looked for it for a while and couldn't find it.

You can also get the s2k seats with civic pans, and it will be an OEM bolton and the s2k seats sit lower, not sure if it's lower than del sol seats tho
