    The front seats bolt perfectly in the right spots and they work perfect, they're more firm, and have more aggressive side bolsters.... the rear seats however.... DON'T FIT. The seat-backs are too wide, the latch for them to fold down is off by about an inch and a half, the bottom of the seat contacts the side bolsters and won't fit properly..... I'll see about modifying things, but I'm just gonna go out and say right now, Don't buy GT rear seats unless you're ready to do fitment modifications.... thank you.

    I can't believe I didn't think to measure them prior to buying them.... and I didn't even think about the fact that the GT is a hatchback and probably has different parts/fitment...

    thats super odd... i had gt rear seats in my 93lx. did you use the mounting brackets from the lx?

    edit i just realised you said wagon... yes the rear seats are different on the wagons. lx/gt sedan are a direct swap

    So I found out, the GT seats don't fit in the back, unless I remove the bolsters, which i don't really care about, so I was actually able to get them to fit! Huzzah!!!!
