I just used the original runners. Cut off the rear mounting and cut it down to get the right seat height and rewelded it back on, then welded a small plat on the front to allow the front bolt to match the hole.

the rails are all the same. ie EA-ed are the same ef/el are different to EA-ED. The mountings are different not the slide rail. So they will all bolt to any seat you have to adjust the height and mounting to suit seat height etc as floor pans were different.
