I did multiple searches (seats-1 hit, seats comfort-0 hits)but I didn't really come up with anything....

Basically I was offered some seats (not power and only cloth) that work for these year maximas. The question I have is should I even take them. I'd really like to know how they feel on long rides. If they are comfortable then I will cut and reweld the tracks from my sentra's seat and put them on to the maximas. I'm not worried about making them fit- I think it will be fairly straightforward. I don't even want to consider doing that kind of work if they are just about as shitty a seat as the sentra. My seats in the sentra are very hard and offer no back support what so ever. I was thinking that maxima's are top quality they just might have some decent sets in them. Thanks for any suggestions.

I have non-powered cloth in my 90 maxima. They are ok. On long trips (5 to 6 hours) they become uncomfortable. But thats it. They work for me.

as he said, they're "okay", but I wouldn't spend a ton of time or money on them. Personally I think the ones in the 240SX or 300ZX are MUCH better on long trips.. I own a 240 now, and I had 300ZX seats in my Maxima for a while.. both are much better than the Maxima seats...

The Maxima seat rails are also a PITA to convert. I tried that when I did my 300ZX conversion. the rails are an integral part of the seat frame on the Maxima and I don't see you cutting them apart very easily, without ruining the rest of the seat in the process. I'm sure it's possible, but I wouldn't want to mess with it.. You'd be better off doing the 300ZX or 240 install, as I've heard the rails are much closer to the 200SX.

I'll take your advice on that, I just thought that free was a good price. I'll take a look around for the 240 or 300 seats. Thanks again
