The recaro seats unlike the others have some brackets that bolt on to the bottom of the seat and connect to the runners that attach to the floor - have you checked these as well? Only other thing I can think of that would make the seats feel loose

Yes I've had this. The runner part that's bolted the floor opens out over the years allowing the seat to rock sideways. I took the runners off and compressed them a little in a vice to close them up again which seems to have helped.
