Seats

In my defender TDI 300 from 1999 I still have the original seats.
When driving longer than an hour I get back problems.
Is it wurth getting a new seat to sit on ?
Or is it bether to get a whole new seat?
Anybody with the same problem??

Re: Seats

Well maybe... I noticed my back would ache if I had the rear of the seat
reclined too much over a long journey. Back problems are probably specific
to each person rather than the car. I would have thought a Landys seating
position was less likely to cause back problems due to the more upright
position...I dunno though.

Re: Seats

Hi

I had the same problem - replaced the seat with a STRATOS suspension seat -
great. Cost me about AU$800 all up including fitting. I selected the XT
commerical but they all seemed good.

Stratos did the seats in the Australian Army Defenders so they know the
vehicles.

In mine, I fitted sierra seats. The ones I had happened to be from an
XR4x4, but that was only 'cos those were sitting around in a spare car.

Needs a plate to bolt to the LR seat runners and also to the underside of
the sierra seat, after removing the runners from it - in fact, I used 2
plates on mine. Can't tell you the dimensions any more, I've sold it, but
they have to be as wide as the width between the seat runners on the LR.
