Default Question on Seats

I'm looking at buying new seats for my PT (Just front and pull the rears out) Are seats universal. I REALLY like the SRT-4 bucket seats, it holds you better, plus you don't get whipped about as bad in a hard turn. Can I just buy a pair and stick them in? I know I'll loose my heated seats (I don't use them anyway, the fuse is out, my ass turn it on when I get in the car.. why do they put them next to the DOOR on the seat?!)

Hi

Seats are seldom a bolt in from a different platform. Even year to year can be different enough to not fit. I would expect that you will need to fabricate some seat rail footings. I would measure carefully that the seats will fit, width wise before buying them. You need to watch the seat height so that your head isn't hitting the roof. It's easier to raise the seat if it's too low. Take some careful measurements before you remove your existing seats so that you position the new ones in the center, steering wheel center and are pointed straight ahead. It will feel really weird if you have mounted the seats at some angle and not straight ahead.

LOL, I don't have a height problem by any sense. I'd prefer that they be higher up so I can actually see really over my steering wheel I know you'll have to modify it to fit, but I was hoping you could, cruiser seats suck for autocross :P

I've got a couple of Mazda MX3 seats for my truck. They are a bit smaller than the OEM GMC seats. They are much better suited to "spirited" driving.

These seats are snug, good thing I've got a small bucket
