2002 Mustang GT Seats

Hi I'm might be looking in the future to replace my stock 02 seats. Does anyone know of any other seats to put into the 2002 mustang gt to make it more comfortable? Mine stock ones are in good shape, it's just they are not comfortable. I've seen on the web where people put in 03 cobra seats. Has anyone else had issues with the 02 seats? I'm looking for any ideas.

Thanks

03/04 cobra seats have more support and are tighter on the bolsters, so it depends on how you define "comfort" really,they wont sit to much better~ and the harness may not work as they have more power options and such compared to the GT seat by far.

racing seats wont be much better and will cost much more as well

Re: 2002 Mustang GT Seats

The 02's seat just don't fit to the body well at all. The head rest is so far back. I heard the 03 seats are more contour to the body. I think that is what I am really shooting for. The newer mustangs seats just fit better, it just seems mustang really slacked on the 02 seats. Will the 03 seats bolt to the rail on the 02 foot print?

Re: 2002 Mustang GT Seats

as far as I know the 03/04 cobra seats are a direct bolt in, its just the wiring harness that you will have to investigate, it may be different... but I am betting if it is its not very much if at all different.

A good set will run you 600-700 bucks for fronts only 1000 for the seat front/rear... its all about quality make SURE you look at the side bolsters as there and the bottom of the seats is where they wear.

Re: 2002 Mustang GT Seats

Yah the 99-04 GT seats are pretty much the same as far as bolstering and positioning.

The only difference was the headrest change in some 03's and 04's. The larger, adjustable headrests were the same as the Mach 1's.

You could check MPS Auto Salvage and Prestige Mustang for used cobra seats...they might have some for a decent price...don't expect them to be perfect, the side bolsters are the first thing to get noticeable wear, usually the driver's side.
