    I've been in contact with Corbeau, I approached them about making a seat bracket that will allow us to install suspension seats in the 2nd generation Xterra's. Before they will start developing the brackets they want to see some demand for it. I would like to start a list of folks that would be interested in installing suspensions seats. If I can get enough demand for it I'll approach them with a group purchase.

    Thanks,

    do we know what corbeau seats would fit? I'm kinda interested just all depends on what we can use. Major question for me is would I get more leg room or less?

    I would imagine most of the standard seats would fit, I'm looking at using the Baja RS. As for leg room, I don't think it would change much since the seats would be on a slider.

    Is it safe to add you to the interested list?

    It would detente them, I'm sure it would set light off... I'll get with Corbeau and ask them about.

    You should be able to add a small resistor circuit to cancel the SRS warning light.

    Excellent, thank you! Any idea of what size and a way to install the resistor?

    I can say that on my first gen with the corbeau brackets, with the seat slid all the way forward I am sitting just where I need to be to drive. Not sure if its because I dont have corbeau seats or not. However I can slide back far enough that I am within inches of the back seat. Its kind of a catch 22 as is because the height of the bracket combined with the height of the seat puts my head within about 3 1/2 inches of the roof of the truck, so anyone much taller than me couldnt fit (i am 5'10") but the bracket wont slide forward far enough for anyone shorter than me to drive. Not as impressed with the brackets as I thought I would be.

    Hmmmm.... Sounds like I might just need to develop my own brackets.

    dont get me wrong, the brackets are solid. the reason I went with them instead of doing my own is because on the first gen the seat belt latch attaches to the seat bracket so I didnt feel comfortable enough with my welds to trust my life with it in the event of a wreck. My biggest gripe with them is that they dont slide forward far enough, and that the supplied slider for the seat only catches on one side so if you hit the brakes really hard, or when your going down a steep hill off road the side that doesnt catch tends to let the seat wiggle around a tiny bit. But again when it comes to my life or the life of my passenger I feel like I needed a bracket that was a known to be solid and reliable.

    I'd need to know the voltage range that the SRS computer is looking for when it does its diagnostics to make sure all the airbags are armed and the sensors are working. What I'd do if it was my truck is solder the proper sized resistor to the contacts in the plug and then wrap the plug in tape or shrink tube to keep it protected and insulated. I've never done it for an airbag light; I did it in my friend's TJ for the seatbelt warning light when we installed Mastercraft seats and 4-point harnesses. Same principle applies though, and it should be pretty simple. Need to know the specs for the circuit, though.

    Ok, thanks I will work on finding the specs for the airbag sensors.

    I am more than comfortable with my welds todo my own brackets. If my welds were strong I would have all ready been killed. Lol

    I'll keep perusing them to build some brackets, but it looks like I'll be building my own at this point.
