Got Saab 95 seats in mine, they are a couple of inches higher, but still ok to drive (I'm 5'11"), I have cut down the passenger base only because I've got a swivel fitted. Comfy seats though T:

Did any of you have to make adjustments or whatever to the runners?
I have a set of Saab seats ( no idea on model ) but the runners are wider apart:*

I just drilled some new holes in the original bases & welded on some captive nuts (don't need to be welded, just makes it easier when fitting).

I Got Saab 9-3 turbo seats in mine, (£20 the pair from the local scrappy)
if anything i would say they are slightly lower than standard seats, But can be raised by adjusting lever. They bolted straight onto the base with two new holes drilled and slotted at the front (half inch wider each side). They are on CMC swivel bases .... takes about an hour per seat realistically if you take your time
