Rsx front seats will not fit into your car unless you modify the brackets. I just put some in, what I had to do was grind off the front two brackets as well as the rear outer bracket (towards the door). turn them around and bolt/JB weld/weld them back on to the rail then bolt the seat back in. On the inner side (towards the center console) you have to drill a new hole between the two existing holes on the rail and bolt the bracket there other wise the rear inner bracket won't line up. I'll get some pictures later. As for the rears I don't know as I didn't pick any up, but I have seen write ups where people have switched the foam and cover from an RSX bracket to their car bracket (not sure if it was integra or civic). Hope this helps!

As far as I know, there doesn't seem to be anyway to get other brackets onto the RSX rail or seat without grinding and welding. Correct me if I'm wrong, but thats just what my research has found.

just go with the gsr's, at the most u might have to swap the inner rail only. and the rears do u need 4 door bottoms on 6gen too? i know on 5gen u do b/c dc coupe bottoms leave a lil gap.

For the GSR's you have to swap the rails and then they fit perfectly. For the RSX, you have to do some modification to the rails.


But seriously now, these questions have been asked a million times. We have a FAQ section (very clearly at the top of the forum), and both DIYs on this subject are linked to in it, with pictures.

RSX seat swap
Agreed. However, the RSX swap is a terrible DIY. First off it just plain looks horrible even if you do paint it black, second I doubt highly that it is safe, third it is super jerry rigged, and fourthly you can reuse the stock mounting brackets. Guess I should do a DIY with my seats... might help some.

Edit: Though I do give props for the write up and the guy with the ***** to first try it out and use those seats! And I will give him credit because he was my inspiration to find a new/other way to do it. I'm not trying to bash on it completely.

The GSR seats will bolt in perfectly except for the inside rear bolt which doesn't line up correctly. The other three are literally the exact same though. If you bolt it in with those, you won't notice any flex or movement in the seat as you drive, but if you get into a crash, it'll definitely tweak the rails (I've seen pics).
