Corvette C4 seats, will they fit..?

Did anyone install any of the late C4 seats in their 3rd gen? Im looking at a set of black '95 seats that look awesome, but Im not sure what it would take to put them in the IROC - does anyone know...?


Thanks,


Ken

I believe they bolt right in, but don't lean back.

I have a set of '91's in my TA. They didnt come with brackets so i just drilled and bolted the stock brackets to the vette seat bottoms. You have to have some tech skills but it not that bad. Check my web page for more details.

They fit, feel, and look awesome!

Thanks - Im sure I can handle the tech part if it is just a matter of fastening the original brackets.
I'll check out your website for sure!!

lol. Most of us would never need them to lean back. The only time I ever did was the one time I had a two and a half hour gap between early morning classes so I'd catch a nap every day in the parking lot. Not quite as comfortable as my old Lincoln, but doable.

Then again, there are probably some hoodrats here who like to drive practically laying down, so just giving them the heads up.

Re: Corvette C4 seats, will they fit..?

After 18 years, is the website even still around?

That said, you can get earlier C4 seats to pitch back a little. Not lean back like the seats in my TA, but still.

I cant believe you guys dont care about leaning back.

I recline pretty frequently if Im waiting somewhere. My car is also a nice weather dd so I put more miles on then some.

ha, didnít notice the date of the post. Google just had it as my top option. So do you have C4 Seats in your TA or were you talking about TA Seats? If C4, any pics?
