What seats fit the best with the least fab work?

I know this has been discussed a lot lately. Most of you have replaced your seats at some time or another. I will replace mine in the next week or so, I just need to go get a set. I have acess to most any kind of late model seats, so I can choose what I get. I do not have the provisions to build anything complicated, so my question is: What seats work well with the least amount of modification.

Re: What seats fit the best with the least fab wor

I just scored a set of Neon seats, 4 door, but they were free so I'm using them. I've taken the drivers side apart and am in the process of grinding the rivets & welds holding the side bracket to sliding rails. Looks as if you need to weld/rivet the bracket back to the Sami rails. I have not got that far yet.
I think Steve has done a few of these and maybe he can elaborate. I read the write up on iZook but it was not clear (to me) how they attached that side bracket to the Samurai rails.

Re: What seats fit the best with the least fab wor

I used '88 Iszuzu Trooper seats. They're on a platform
which needs to be removed and the rails are exactly the
same width and length of the stock Zuk. All you need to
do is drill 2 holes in the Zuk seat rail to line up with the
Trooper rails and bolt them on.
Very comfortable. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

Re: What seats fit the best with the least fab wor

I junked my 84-300ZX a few years ago, and put those seats in my zuk.I used the nissan rails( the driver sides all power) and cut the zuk's rail mounts out. All of the nissans rail mounts were different hights so i choped up some aluminum body mounts an leveled the seats, then just bolted them through the floor.You could put just about any seat in like that.

I have Metro seats. I paid $20 for two seats and bought the install kit from Hawk. Pretty simple

Re: What seats fit the best with the least fab wor

scottie, i fully agree those exploder seats are very comfortable. i wanted to install a set of eddie bauer leather seats out of an exploder in my ranger but i can never find a good deal on a set.

as for seats, geo metro seats are super cheap or free and they can be bolted in using a cheap adaptor from hawk like has already been mentioned. i don't know of any other swap that is easier.

i installed a set of gti seats in my gti powered samurai and i absolutely love them but they are not direct bolt on but well worth the extra effort.

i have a stack of old stock samurai seats that i don't need anymore so this summer i will be making a few into lawn chairs. i figure i can just leave them out in the rain and let the dogs chew the $hit out of them and not give a rip.

No mention of the Metro install kit that I can find on Hawk's website..is this a request item? How much is it?

Did you use 2 door metro seats for access to the back?

Really need new seats here and keeping them Suzuki is good [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Older honda accord seats work very nice and they line up real good with the sammy slides and mounts, I have put several sets in Sammys and the honda accord seats were by far the easiest I have done, my two cents

Re: What seats fit the best with the least fab work?

I have a set of Mazda seats that are out of a 626 (I think) and all I had to do to bolt in the drivers seat was re-drill the holes in the seat rails and bolt them into the stock mounting points using the stock seat bolts. It literally took about 10 minutes for the drivers seat and if I remember correctly all I had to do for the passengers seat was remove the Mazda seat rails and drill a few holes to mount the Zuk rails on it. Another easy seat to install is the Esteem seats. They go on like the Swift/Metro seats....EASY!
