Impreza GC8 Questions on '02-'03 WRX & RS seats, and pre-2002 fitment

Hey all.

Two main questions:

1. Are the 2002-2003 WRX and RS seats basically the same seat, except for the airbags in the WRX versions, and the different cloth pattern?

2. We all know they tend to sit too tall in a pre-2002 Impreza. But if one were to use the pre-2002 brackets on the new seat, would it then sit "properly?"

Just a thought. I have leather in my car, so it's not a simple matter of a quick swap, but I do recall rather liking the '02 WRX seats when I sat in them.

Thanks-
=S2=

Yes, the 02 RS and WRX seats are the same, save for the airbag and the seat cover. I thought I saw something on Scoobymods about doing the swap, but I don't recall if they used the pre-02 brackets or not.

The one they did was for the rear bench to fit in an RS, without sticking up to tall into the rear window space. Some cushion is cut out, I think.

If there's a "mod" for the fronts, I haven't seen it. Could be there though.

Guess I'll just wait on an answer for #2.

You cant use the early brackets to lower the front seats.
Because of the hight adjustment on the drivers side, the bracket and seat itself are all one piece.
I've done the swap in 2 GC8's now and have found no way to lower the front seats
