Default WTB sti seats.

Hello as the title says, I would like to buy sti seats. Now I also need to find out how to put those in my rs. Does anyone know if there are frame rail adapters I can buy or would they be a direct bolt on, haha? thanks


for a 98 gc

should be a direct fit, only issue is your airbag lights will be on unless you get STI seats with side seat air bags. USDM I think wont be an issue but JDM will for airbags.

You need deletes if your going JDM.

I know a few people with STI seats going back to stock so they should be available.

The rail bolts on, just higher. If ran across how to make them lower let me know so I can save money instead of buying just a single seat - can't fit with helmet on right now

for a 98 GC was his edit, sounds like it's for his buddies car, in which case don't worry about the airbag thing on the sides since I don't think the 98 had it, otherwise I think you will need to swap rails to get low pro rails for the GC.

The lower seat rails only lower them by 20mm max which is less than 1" - for JDM stock STi seats you need to lower more than 1" for sure

so he needs to get lower rails?
anyone know if there is a place that sells them? or a kit of some kind to put in with the seats?

he is a tall mofo, so if it sits really high without it, he wouldnt fit.

I'm 5'8" and I barely fit my hand between my head and the headliner (more room in the sunroof area) on the stock JDM Ver8 seats
