Default wagon rear seat swap questions

First, apparently the 1st gen wagon rear seats fold flat. true?
Second, can I reasonably swap them into my gen2? I'm pretty handy but I don't have access to a grinder/metalworking tools.

I dug deep in the search results but I can't find answers. Thanks!

The S-Series never had fold flat seats. They fold down sure, but not flat or anywhere near flat.

I got my hopes up

I'd still be interested in getting rid of the bar on the seatbacks: I spend a lot of time hauling stuff and the flexibility of independent seats would be a lifesaver. I'm usually driving with the rears folded anyway so the side-impact safety is moot. do the seatbacks interchange?

The latch is in a different place on the sedan seat-backs than the wagons, the bottoms are identical.

I don't remember a bar behind the seat backs on a '97 SW2 but I found out real freaking quick the useable extra cargo room is just as fake as the flat-folding rear seats and effectively traded it in for a "smaller" Impreza 2.5TS that actually had more cargo room.

my old 97 sw2 had the bar, as does my current 98.

to better phrase my question, are all generations of wagon rear seatbacks interchangeable? is there any weirdness needed to drop gen1 wagon seatbacks into a gen2 wagon? no sedans or coupes involved.

I may not be remembering this correctly but if you never plan on actually using the back seats, I'm pretty sure that if you remove the cushion that you sit on it will allow the back to fold down flat, or at least closer to flat
