Restore the movement of your Mustang seats with this 1979-1998 Mustang seat track assembly from 5.0 Resto! Whether you have a power seat or a manual seat, eventually the fore/aft and up/down movement will cease.

This manual seat track allows you to dial in the position of your seat with double locking sliders attached to the hand adjustment bar. Manufactured with a durable steel material, these seat tracks are built to last. 5.0 Resto's seat tracks are a direct replacement for Mustangs equipped with power and manual seat tracks from the factory.
