Technical help needed on 1984 bucket seat tracks

Hello, I recently purchased a 1984 K30 factory bucket seat truck, bad thing is the bucket seats had been removed and replaced with a bench seat long before I got it. I'm wanting to restore the truck back to the original SPID. So far I have acquired a set of 85 K5 buckets, the correct truck stationary passenger side floor brackets and year correct console. I have not been able to find the correct driver side slider floor brackets so I've been considering modifying the bench seat tracks instead. The technical help I need is the measured height between top of seat tracks and bottom of bucket seat frame, front and rear. I will need to fabricate these two brackets(2) in order to use the bench seat sliders. If someone has a factory set available to measure or a technical design drawing for factory originals, that would be great and much appreciated. Thanks!

Here are some pictures of what I've got so far.

That is what I have seen most folks do, use the bench seat brackets and make the stand/mount for the inner track.

Right, I can see why. Hard to find original ones, not many produced. I would like to get a good measurement of the original setup before making the brackets. Thank you for the reply.
