Odd Recaro seat rails?

OK, I'm far from the expert on Recaro seat rails - my car's seats sit kind of funny, they tilt back a bit more than seems normal. I'm wondering if maybe it's the seat rails. My sample size of seat rails is pretty small - can anyone tell me what these rails are from, and\or if they have also noticed the tilt towards the back with them? I probably can shim these and get them right. Eventually I might replace them as I'm tall - I don't plan on tracking the car, but having a little extra headroom for a helmet would be a nice extra if there are any rails that drop the seat down.

Judging from the seat belt posts on the tunnel side, I'd say you've got e21 adapters under those seats.  They do increase the height of the seats by about 5/8".  There are adapters that lower the seat even compared to the stock 2002 versions.
