No, I don't think they do.

EF/(EL?) GLi seats are shithouse anyways, they are too hard... too high and too short in the back. They are shockers!

Re: Ef/el Front Seats Coversion

They do, but they don't! The left rear of the the front seat, for example, will have a large gap because the seat rails are different. You need to modify this to get them to fit correctly. The rear is a straight swap.

Re: Ef/el Front Seats Coversion

The easiest way to modify the front seats is to cut a piece of tube to fit (about 5 inches), then drill a new hole in the floor and use a long nut+bolt to secure it. Easy.

Can't say I agree with fordfanatic, I went on a road trip with a mate a few years back in an EL wagon, Perth to Albany to Esperance, then back up through Kalgoorlie. Can't remember the exact distance covered offhand, but it was well over 1 000 km. Those seats were some of the most comfortable I've been in. I currently have EF Fairmont seats in my EB and love them. Much better than the old EB ones!

Re: Ef/el Front Seats Coversion

that "trick" with the long bolt is quite dodgy. if you got pulled up by any roadworthy authorities youd get dicked. the seat mount point is a structural point in the floor and to change it you need an engineers - at least in victoria.

Re: Ef/el Front Seats Coversion

EF/EL seats are nice and comfy, EL seats are better then EF as they're softer.
but the EF Ghia leather seats are much better then my GLi seats

Re: Ef/el Front Seats Coversion

Re: Ef/el Front Seats Coversion

GLi seats are like sitting on planks
hardly any bolstering at all.
