SX/4 and Spirit Front Seat
« on: May 05, 2024, 10:32:54 AM »
Hello, Does anyone know if the front seat from a Spirit will fit into an SX/4?

Thank you

Like amcfool1 said, it will not fit. This is because the shape of the floor of the Eagle is different from the floor of the Spirit because of the Eagle’s transfer case.

What year Spirit seats are you looking at?   The parts books say that the '81-up seats are the same EXCEPT for the inner seat tracks.   So if you swap the inner tracks from the old seats to the new ones, they should work.

That’s interesting. Not to hijack, but it’s it the same case with concords and 30 series Eagles?

The parts books don't support that theory -- as there are different part numbers for the seat frames between the Eagle and Corndog models.   But that doesn't mean it won't work.   The different numbers may be due to some other differentiation in the frames other than the track attachment location.

Hmmmmm.  I wonder if he was comparing pre-1981 Spirit seat frames; which do carry a different part number than the Eagle seat frames.
