Has anyone put different seats in the focus my seat is very worn and uncomfortable, mine is a 2007 zx3. I've looked in how to, articles I've found nothing, I'm just tired of searching through google just trying to narrow my it down

Corbeau has some great seats and focus specific brackets. You will have an airbag light after.

I used to have a set of Corbeau LG1 seats in my 07 hatch. Probably the best thing I did to it

Do you mean there is an air bag sensor in the stock seat? I have a 2007 Focus Wagon and the driver's seat is awful.

I wouldn't consider a racing-style seat "comfy"

Depends on what you get. The 100% race seats that are just a metal pan...no, not comfortable. But there are some seats out there that are actually pretty awesome. I ran some sparco's in my camaro for a while that were the most comfortable seats I've ever sat in.

But it is also personal opinion. Some people find racing seats comfy, others hate them. I am probably one of the few people in the world that find crotch rockets to be comfortable to ride, so maybe I'm just weird.

Crotch rockets for a few miles, for me. Then the road king custom for longer rides.

most sport (reclinable or multi position) and racing seats are universal and can be put in anything. you just need to get focus specific brackets to mount them on. I had a set of megan racing sport seats in my 03 and they were pretty comfy overall. only thing I didn't like was there wasn't a lot of lower back support in them as with most inexpensive seats. some seat makers offer a lumbar add on option that's basically an air pillow put in the seat. would be worth looking into getting that if you do a lot of driving. Been a while, but if i remember correctly I got the weapon r brackets for mine and were about $80 for the pair. they come with some pre drilled holes, but I did have to drill a couple new holes to bolt them up correctly.

edit:
you can always get better seats out of a different car as well. the 08-11 focus seats will bolt in just fine and are more comfortable. or get seats from whatever and a bracket and install. a guy out here got some from a rx8 and he said it wasn't a bad install to put them in.

If your '07 seats have side airbags, you will need to find a way to use those airbags with the new seats, or find a way to install a "cheater" into the system to fool the SRS controller into believing that the side airbags are present. "Cheaters" are available, for "off road use only", just like ORPs. When the airbag light is on, the entire SRS is disabled. Good luck.
