90BJ Legacy LS ABS
AWD 946 Rio Red Jpn built


Commmon problems:
Side seat belt has no holder, falls into door seam
Clip for lap belt rubs on center console
Seat height is different enough to cause uncomfortable driving (especially if you get non height adjust seats)

Anyways, I swapped 97 Legacy GT seats into my 90 Legacy LS keeping the 97 rails. The rails bolted fine. I had some seat belt issues so I decided to use the 90 rails with 97 seats. The 90 rails where a little shorter so I dremmeled the front and was able to bolt them to the 97 seats. I then dremmeled out two holes on the outside of each seat to connect the lap belt holder to the side. If you need specifics please ask.

I plan to take the 97 Legacy GT seats out and use 91 Legacy Turbo seats instead. The second generation Legacy seats aren't designed as well as the first generation units. Comfort is far higher with the older seats. I ESPECIALLY like that some first gens have Vertical AND Horizontal adjustable head rests

cybin: Your overly worried. You dont mind driving a vehicle with 15 gallons of extremely flamable liquid but you want to take out the HEAVILY regulated air bags that have never just deployed for no reason?

I'm still kicking myself for picking the V8 over the V7 to install on my MY00 - I should have been driving in the STi seats starting late September...

I'm looking for info on swapping height adjusters on JDM seats from my drivers seat to the JDM passenger seat so I can keep my adjustments.

I looked for Imprezer info on it but that too long ago and i couldn't find anything.

Not true. People have been hurt badly by airbags going off. The warning label even states that they can go off accidentally. Emergency workers have been hurt when they try to cut though the car and hit a side impact airbag. I drive with the gas becouse I have too, No sense driving around with airbags that are not hooked up.

Anyway heres one website with more info.

Default Outback rear seat into Impreza Sedan???

Would it be possible to swap a 98 Outback rear seat into my 95 Impreza sedan? Ive never seen the inside of an Outback so I have no idea, if they wont fit, would the seat cover swap?

Thanks for any help!

Bump from the dead. Might be common knowledge but...

2002/2003 WRX Sedan Front and Back seats will fit in a 95-99 Legacy Sedan.

A couple of notes though: You have to use your Legacy seat belt clip and a spare nut/bolt. The lowest position of the WRX seat is only slightly lower than the highest position of the Legacy seat. Only 4 of 5 front seat bolts line up. The rear seats fit well although there is a slight gap so you can see the top of the strut from the rear triangle window. Despite this, it's worth it, the stock Legacy seats are crap!

Now, which year WRX Wagon seats will fit a 2004 Impreza wagon? I assume: 2002-2007 Front will fit, 2002-2005 Rear will fit? Anything else?

So- my 2012 Impreza has seats that I just dont find comfortable. Plus I keep hearing a sqeaky spring sound from the backrest shoulder area. SOA is supposed to be fixing it but the noise is intermittent so its hard to replicate on command.
I really like this car other than the seats. I've driven Legacy's and find their seats to be much firmer and more supportive.
Would Legacy seats fit/work in an Impreza? And also what to do about the side airbag?? Any help or suggestions would be great. Thanks.

I beat all the 'it sits higher' complaints

02/03 seats
Ver6 bottom foam
Stock 98 rails

And my harnesses remedy any seatbelt issue I have

The back seat will have to be modified a bit, but yes.

Default Seat swap

Does anyone know if 2008 Subaru STI front seats will fit on a 2004 Forester XT with no modifications? Are the bolt patterns exactly the same?
