The SVT seats, with rails, bolt onto the ST floor with four Torx bolts. If the height switch is wired into the harness (any power wire will do), the height is adjustable. My ST, and I'm sure yours too, has a manual height adjustment. From eyeballing each of them, it appears that the linkage itself is the same. It's cheaper to put in a crank than a switch and a motor lol. I have read that many (some?) STs come with the requisite harness and plugs for seat heaters, whether the car is equipped with heaters or not. I'm not sure whether it includes the height adjustment too, mine did not have that harness. I did buy the harness from someone here on FF, and will include it with the SVT seats, whether they go with the car or not.
