There is no "Ex" hatchback, but we know what you are talking about.

92-95 Civic seats will not fit well in a Crx. Only two holes will line up.

To correctly put these seats in, you need to modify the rails or swap the seat pans over.

I would advise against putting Civic seats in a Crx. From my searching and what i have read, they will sit 4-5 inches higher, are also wider than Crx seats, and will not line up with the factory mounting holes.

Find some other Crx seats in better shape, IMO putting Civic seats(no matter how cheap you can get them) in a Crx is not worth the time or work.

If other seats cannot be found, spend the money and have it done right by an upholster.

My friend had EG seats in his 89 hatch when he bought it. I don't know why you would put them in, they are crappy seats. If you can't find CRX/EF seats look for Del Sol seats, they need fabrication but they are pretty nice seats, hold you well and sit nice and low.

trying to shoehorn some seats in jjsut because they are cheap seems like a bad idea...would you put in camaro seats if they were $50? Buick lesabre? :)

Exactly my point!
Don't pick up seats just because they are cheap, especially if they will NOT fit right and need "more than it would be worth fabrication" to fit!

i agree. i had leather integra gsr seats in my crx for a while.. first off, i could only get 2 bolts in.. not safe. 2. i sat about 4-5 inches higher.. baker423 isn't kidding. and 3, they are wider, wider to the point where when you go to roll the window up or down it hits the seat. its still useable but it does hit. hope this helps

we should make a sticky that says something along the lines of "the only seats that don't suck in a CRX are CRX seats, or maybe del sol seats if you're willing to get creative."

even EF hatch seats sit way too high.
