They are suitable for cruising and track duty.

As a "Factory price saver", what weight would be saved, Pete, if 1LS seats (non-6-way powered, non-heated cloth) were utilized?

#3 would be a better source, but my guess is 10 pounds. Hey #3, we need you!

Corbeau LG1 seats. We used their bolt-in seat tracks as well. Changing the seats saved approximately 150 pounds over the factory seats.

Side airbags, with powered recline...saving 75 lb/seat is realistic...but those particular Corbeaus are NOT OEM-passable re: constellation-starred side impact crash-test ratings. Anything that is, combined with leather/heaters/coolers/bags/power adjustment is HEAVY.

This is great news. Dropping 200 lbs off a Camaro should be fairly easy.
