The lumbar support for the drivers seat is not only in the Limiteds. I have that feature and leather in my 99 SR5, though I am coveting the heated, power seats only available (I believe) in the 01-02 Runners.

We have some extra (1988 was the donor car) MR2 seats you are welcome to look at but I can not be certain they would bolt up and most certainly would need re-upholstered. However, they would indeed be cheap... ahh forget it my son mentions they have no lumbar support.

If you can find really old Mazda 323 GT or GTX (only in US 88-89) seats those were my favorite of all time with tilt for longer legged drivers and manual lumbar supports.

Thanks Ron. I guess I'm just used to bigger more comfortable seats. I was starting to toy with the idea of seeing how volvo seats might fit. The wife's got nice seats in her S60.

it does occur to me that a member on Yota Tech or T4R found Honda Odyssey seats that matched interior color pretty well but of course the brackets took some work. Not sure about lumbar and so on.

Good luck with this project.

I'm a fan of Mazda seats as well. Mine were from an '88 RX7. They mounted flat to the floor (was critical for my '73 Bronco) with just the front of the rails having a 1 inch or so tab folded down for the mounting screw. Not exactly a match to a minitruck's floor cross brace, but close. They were comfy seats. Recaro-ish but not as tight in the kidneys as my '82 Sirocco Recaros were.

I have not been in an S60, but the seats in my 740 were way comfy, if not a bit wide for sport buckets.
