wrx seats in a loyale

I think it depends on the year, you might be able to just swap out the sliding mechanism or drill out 2 holes. The rail spacing should be identical for GC(jdm)/GD wrx's.
With the rear seats, I believe you have to flip or modify a couple of the tabs.
100% for sure it has been done before.

I used the old seat rails. On the drivers side I needed to weld angle iron to the old rail to work with the lifting mechanism, I also removed the assist spring so the seat would go lower. The pass side needs a custom bracket for the seat back, as this is part of the removed WRX rail.
Now, if your short you could build it easier but there will be less headroom.
