Need to replace my manual Driver Seat Track - Corbeau, OEM, Junkyard, other?

My seat has been rocking forward a little for a few months, and as of a couple weeks ago wouldnt pull forward (stuck). Shop says I need to replace the seat track - any pointers on where to go? They say an OEM one they would order costs $980. But Corbeau ones (via AmericanMuscle and CJPony) are just $120 or so. Can anyone help me with any pros or cons? Is there any downside to the Corbeau ones? Or should I try to find one at a junkyard? Or somewhere/something else?

Thanks!

The corbeau ones are different from the oem seats, made specifically for the corbeau seats
i have a corbeau racing seat that i needed to get brackets for and the oem seat with the track still on it is sitting on my basement

Ah, thanks for that info. Is there such a thing as an after market track for OEM seats? Or do I just need to start calling around junkyards?

Don't know what year is your car but mine is an 05 and this is similar to what i have https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/pMsAA...03/s-l1600.jpg
Pretty beefier compared to the aftermarket ones, i guess mostly because of the incline/decline option of the seat controls

The aftermarket ones specially the corbeau one for my year has 4 bolts that attaches to the seat from the bottom.

The oem seat connects to the oem track in diff positions
Junkyards are your best bet but let me know what your year is maybe mine fits yours, i have no use for it

Also be careful when removing the seat, some people's bolt tend to snap (whole lot of threads on google show up for the older models)
And don't force the old bolt in if its not going in smoothly near the end or the head will break while the 80% of the bolt is still inside, don't ask me how i know LOL

Beechkid,
Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately the closest one on that site is still a bit of a hike - I will call around locally.

xavicho3,
Mine is a 2006 - but where are you located?

Kearny NJ, let me know if you have no luck finding one
I could ship, just take care of the shipping fees

I found one at a "local" (well, hour drive) junkyard. Fingers crossed that it works.
