Stock seat install issue

Got stock seats from the bay without the rails. Took my after markets off and I'm trying to match up my rails to the bottom of the seat and there is no way to bolt this thing on. Also noticed that the the gas spring is missing. Had asked the seller to send seat minus the rails but now I'm trying to find out what I need to get this thing fit. Where can I see some detailed pictures of the seat and the mounts etc?

There is driver side and passenger side manual rail on Ebay right now $150 driver side $125 pass side. They look just like the rails I remove from my 2003 stock seat. I used mine with the Brey Krause rails. The biggest problem you may have then is I doubt that you will get the slide in fastaning plates for the bolts the hold the seat to the rail.

I have both the original rails. The seller didn't send the gar spring and the mounting plate (?) that ties in the seat and the rail system. Sorting it out with him. Thanks.

Sorry I should have read slower. I looked at my old seats and see what you are talking about. The lift cylinder for seat height.

Thanks for the replies. Spoke to the seller. He is going to scavenge the parts and mail it for for free (whatever he can gather). Apparently the gas springs and the mounting plates between the seat and the rails itself are part of the railing system. I'm being told.
