Does anyone know if the 6th or 7th gen seats will bolt into the 5th gen with minor to no modificataion?

Thanks, Chris

Minor, yeah....

I think 6th gens go right in, 7th will require modification.

I can tell you they won't fit in a 4th gen. I measured the distance between the front two bolts on both and they're about 18 inches apart on the 6th gen and about 16 inches apart on the 4th gen.

7th gens wont go in a 5th gen without modification. Joel (Sloceli) has them in his car and he had to weld to get them to work.

GReat, thanks for the info :)

Now if someone could confirm an answer for the 6th gen seats, that would be awesome!

measure the distance between the bolts from center of one bolt to the center of the other. measure the distance between the front two, the back two, and then one front and one back and I can tell you if it matches up with the measurements of a 6th gen.

Great! Here they are...

Front L2R - 17 1/8"

Rear L2R - 18 1/2"

Front2Back - 16 3/4"

The front to back was a little odd because of the slight angle of the front mount. Let me know what you think :)

Thanks! Happy 4th EVERYONE!!!!
