So the SRS issue only matters if the car is equipped with it then.

oh oki thanks ^^

But ? what's the matter with a seat swap ?

I put 02 SVT seats in my 05 zx5 and I only had to swap the passenger seat air bag sensor.
Everything should work find after plugging all the wires. And, 00-04 focuses don't have the passenger air bag sensor.

One of the reasons I bought the svt over the st was the seats. I also have back probs.

Interesting. I had to swap the side seat air bags and the seat belt buckles before the air bag light would go off.

I have the blue half leather SVT seats and honestly they are not that comfortable for me. Everyone is different. I used to have a 90 vw with recaros, those were spectacular.

Yeah I swap the 05 wires in the 02 seats too^^ for sure they are not the same.

The passenger bag sensor was a pain in the a$$ to install but it worth it ahah^^

I suffer lower back pain esp. while sitting.

Svt cloth seats didn't have enough support for me.

The eap leather recaros have amazing support. No back pain.

I totalled my svt and I am turning my passenger recaro seat into a desk chair!!!
