do metro/swift seats bolt on a sami?

if not, anyone got a good way to adapt them to fit? The stock seats are killing my bad back, well, so is the suspension ;-)

Re: do metro/swift seats bolt on a sami?

I put SR5 bucket seats from a tercel 4x4 wagon and sits an inch taller but had to modify. lot a people i know put CRX seats and swift gt seats and they all had to be modified. since the metro is pretty much the same car as the swift chances are you'll have to modify. might as well find better seats than what the geo offers. just my 2 cents - mike

'97-'98 Chevy Blazer (GMC Jimmy) seats go in very easily.

Re: do metro/swift seats bolt on a sami?

I have Swift seats in my Zuk, you will use the mounts and rails from the Sam seats, just drill new holes in the Swift seat base to match the holes on the Sam seat rails, use a good steel bolt and washer and yer in business. Very comfy seats and only about 30 minutes of work.

Re: do metro/swift seats bolt on a sami?

I bought modified seat rails from Hawk Suzuki along with Metro seats,this made the installation a bolt in affair. The seats sit you up
about an inch higher and are very comfortable,my friend thought i did something to the suspension to improve the ride.

Re: do metro/swift seats bolt on a sami?

cool man that is just what i wanted to hear. Any thing has to be more comfy than these seats. Mine are toast, there is no covering on the butt area of the drivers side seat. Just foam. Thanx again i will be visiting the boys at the junkyard soon

Re: do metro/swift seats bolt on a sami?

Since you are going to the junk yard anyway, see if you can find a Porshe 944 there. I know there aren't all over the place, but I got a pair of black bucket seats out of an '86 for $200 in mint condition. The driver's seat has power up and down and tilt. They were very easy to install, and I have never owned a vehicle with more comfortable seats.

Just a suggestion, since you were looking anyway.

Re: do metro/swift seats bolt on a sami?

MR2 seats fit but it wasn't an easy swap. I had to make all new mounts for the passenger side.

You can make any seat fit if you really want to! It just comes down to how much time and effort you're willing to put into it. I got my MR2 seats for free so I didn't mind spending the better part of the day installing them.

Re: do metro/swift seats bolt on a sami?

Hi! I recently put in a pair Mazda RX-7 GLSE Turbo Mk. 5 seats in place of the stock seats.
Feels like a thousand dollars. Firm feeling. Seats about 3/4 inches higher.

Anyway, I re-used the original seat brackets/sliders and welded square tubings to the sliders so that the seats can
be mounted to the sliders. Also, the passenger seat came with a tiny foot pedal to retract the seats for passengers
sitting behind. It worked like the original setup. The dimension of the seats where it mounts are very close to the original.

Only on the driver's side, I had to weld an extra tubing to make it sit level as it's lower near the tunnel.

Wish I had a digital cam or scanner so I could post the picture. The original seats were about 19 inches across the
widest area. The new seats are like 21 inches. It makes a tight fit to reach the lever to adjust the recline of the back
rest but you can do that with the door open...
