Default 98 wagon seats in a 95 sedan?

There is a some interior stuff for sale locally near me, and i'm wondering if i can make it fit in my car.
its the leather/heated front seats, rear seats, front/rear door cards and center consol from a 98 wagon, and i'd like them to go into a 95 sedan (L) with the grey cloth interior.
will this work?
i know the front seats should bolt up, but the rears look like a 60/40 split. i figure they wouldnt fold down which isnt a huge problem (or i could make it happen Wink ). what about the door cards and consol though? are they the same between the wagon/sedan?
and while i'm on the topic of seat upgrades, will the wrx/sti/RS rear seat fit in a sedan? i can probably make some brackets happen just as long as the seat dimensions are pretty close.
thanks for the input people.

The Wrx rear seats will work in the rear of the sedan they just won't fold. I have 02 rears they bolted right up. As for the center console I don't think subaru changed it so parts of that should work in the 95, same goes for the door cards they should the same. As for the leather heated seats I don't know someone else will have to answer that question.

The only thing that might be different about the rear door cards is speaker grills (Speakers are in the rear doors on the BG Legacy and in the rear deck on the BD). Other than that, The center console will bolt in (7 Screws IIRC). I don;t think you can make the rear wagon seat work in the sedan. It'd just be better to get a WRX / STI rear seat. They fit OKAY in the legacy (You can still see the rear strut towers through the rear quarter window).

It'll take some wiring to make the seatheaters work. They require their own circuit. I believe they draw about 15 amps while they're on. I don;t think they started wiring the cars for the seat heaters until 1997. It'd probably be easiest to download the wiring diagram from Techinfo and making your own harness that runs off the battery for the seat heaters. In my legacy, I put the STI seats in Front and Rear... I got tired of leather...

I find that the leather seats are fairly slippery.
For performance driving you are better off with a cloth seat.

Being up in Maine having heated seats may prove to be of some benifit although you will need to rig up seat heater switches, and possibly some thermostats (?)

Is that the height adjustment on the STi Seat? I really like that feature on the Outback seats and I think I would miss it on STi seats.

I think I may just buy a used momo acropolis seat for me and let everyone else ride in relative comfort

Or anyone elso who cna help me out:
You seem to have a lot done to your car. My dad just gave me his Legacy wagon (96' EJ22). I've been searching high and low for aftermaket parts but I can't seem to find anything. I've been told that many parts from other cars such as the impreza would cross directly over.

Could you guys help me specify what exactly crosses over? (intake, exhast, suspention)

I'm not really looking for power. All I want to do is improve handeling and dress up the car a little. I already have JDM headlights and tailights and thats about all I'll do for exterior upgrades besides wheels. I really would like to upgrade the swaybars and beef up the suspension, not really looking to drop the car a lot either. As for motor work, I figured a bigger exhaust (possibly stock WRX exhast) and an intake would help out mileage.

I have a lot of stock parts from my WRX (sedan) and was wondering if any of my parts will cross over?

Thanks

2.5rs headers, like the borla ones, will work as well.

If you do a search in this forum you will see what will and won't work for suspension. It has been covered, and then some. Most things from the WRX won't work without additional extras. As for exhaust, no other exhausts will work without custom work. Intakes, pulleys, headers and hi-flow cats are all interchangable between the like years Impreza/Legacy. An Outback stock rear sway is 18mm and is a cheap upgrade for you. Otherwise Whiteline and IPD make pieces to fit. for the least lowering I recommend WL control springs. www.pdm-racing.com carries them.

good luck

Jared

One more question, (about the headders, I thought the 2.5 motors are dual port, I was told that 96' and up 2.2 Legacy's are single port. So if this is so, the headders would not mate up am I correct? Would the 2.5 cat-back cross over? I'm not realy lookng for gains in this department, just better looks.

Sorry, should have qualified. 2.5L engines are dual port. They will accept the same headers (ie: borlas). If you have single ports there are Borlas for that too. The exhaust is pretty specific to the model, as the routing is different between the Legacy and Impreza lines, as well as between model codes (ie: a 2004 legacy catback will not fit on a your car.)
