Does anyone know if seats from another type of car will work on the seat rails of a focus?? Looking for new seats at the yard today and was curious if anyone knew of any other seats that would work. Thanks

I wish someone can answer this. I am wanting some new seats. Actually I want to lower my seats if possible

I would just measure the rails and check the seats in the yard to see if they are the same.

You can get pretty much any bucket seat to work.
There are two issues you need to contend with. The first one being the rails/sliders. The floor attachment points are different for every car. Many times you'll need to fab new lower rails so that you can use the hardware that attaches to the seat bottom.
The next issue is electrical. You will need to figure out a way to get the wiring harness spliced in so your airbag light doesn't come on. Also, you'll need to power any curtain airbags/seat adjusters if the new seats have them.

Does anybody know of any buckets that will bolt in with minimal fab work?
