Default Name the difference between these seats.

Cant seem to figure out where in 05-09 the seat frame mounting point has changed and between which models. I have yet to find(ebay) another leg/out seat that has same FLAT front mounts.

Pictures is suppose to be an 09 i limited. while there are both sedans and wagon seats sold with same seats but different brackets.



Anyone know?










All other Leg seat frames out there. With high angle near 50 degree front brackets.

Are you sure the flat mount is supposed to be flat? In the 2nd, close-up picture, you can see on the inside edge of that mount there's a spot where the mount humps up a bit. Makes me wonder if that mount was originally angle but has been flattened, leaving that humped up spot.

Very good observation, i'll take a closer look. wounder how it could get flattened that much unless those idiots at the yard threw the seat down or beat it straight on purpouse. Makes perfect sense though.

Thanks!

Took a mallet to it and it "cured" the problem. How they were bent flat is beyond me.

Thanks for being captain obvious haha
