Default Seat swap in a sedan??

will the QC seats fit in a sedan? thinking about looking for either a set of leathers or recaros for my sedan being we all know the seats aren't that good.
Just wondering if anyone has tried it.
If not, or I cant find a set, a custom re-fabrication will be in order.
any input guys?

...

As I stated in a recent thread (search is your friend), all seats from any ion and cobalt will bolt up to any ion or cobalt. You don't even have the passenger side airbag sensor to worry about since you have an 03

I saw that thread, and could remember the answer, and just did a quick half-azzed search before I went to work.
I figured they would, just wanted to double check before I went and spent money.

they're going to attach the same, the only thing you might need to do is find matching sedan bolsters. not sure if the qc bolsters fit.

I figured that were going to attach the same. Id like to know where he got that info on it not fitting also.
and if I have to find bolsters too, that's fine. but lets see if he chimes back in with proof.

sorry, im not gonna put recaro/leather seats in the front. and have the cloth in the back. im not trying to piece a car together little by little with mismatching stuff.

The front and rear seats from a coupe will swap into a sedan without an issue. The dimensions of the seats and attachments points for both the front and rear seats of both the coupe and sedan are identical. No additional parts beyond the rear seat bottom and back are required for the swap from the coupe to the sedan.

The only thing to be aware of with putting the coupe seats in the back of a sedan is that you will lose your rear middle seat, as the coupe has cup holders in the center of the back seat.

This swap has been done a few times by members on here and ionforums, but this was the most recent one I could find from member ion skater6912:

must say the recaros look damn good in there. I absolutely love them in my RL. so why not in the sedan next? think im gonna start saving up for a set.
Im not worried about that center seat. I never have more than 2 other people in the car anyway.
Thanks for the pics guys!

Started swapping My 06 sedan seats(front) for ones out of an 06 cobalt SS. All the mounting points are the same, but the airbag sensors are different. Anybody have a solution to this?
