Can i switch my svt recaro's around?

I have 77k miles on my driver seat and my passenger seat is always empty, it looks practically new (not as new as my back seats though, no one is ever there). So i wanna switch them around, can i do it? I know its gonna be a pain with the levers being in crappy places that they are now but i dont ever mess with them. I just wanna know if the seat heaters will be able to connect on the different side?

any help would be great.

i dont think its possible because of the airbags. you may however be able to switch the seat bottoms out.

Yeah, you could swap the seat bottoms, but that's it.
The seat mounts and seat backs are unique to left and right sides.

There's 4 bolts holding the seat bottom on.

PS...Off Topic...
I didn't know you changed your name Chaney.
How's it going??

^^^There's also holes for the lumbar support and seat back tilt that need to be dealt with as well.
They're on opposite sides of each cover.

^Ding ding ding. He's right. Just do the seat. That's all that should be going anyway.

Also, the airbag section of the cover would have to be dealt with. I don't agree with switching the bottoms because you would have a mixed old/new look to both seats. Look for a leather treatment/restoration lotion or some such.
