280 se Coupe seats

Will a 108 or a 109 seat fit into the 111 - 280 se coupe. Someone had mentioned earlier that both cars use the same seat backs - is this true? Also what kind of modification may be needed for the bottom seat?

RE: 280 se Coupe seats

The seats in my 3.5 coupe were broken down and sagging with broken springs when I bought it. I bought a pair of seats from a 280se 108 to repair them. The backs are the same but the 280se 108 bottoms have much better and more supportive coil springs instead of the flat springs of the original seats. I had my leather installed on the 108 seats. The problem I haven't dealt with is the locking mechanism for the seat backs. With the 108 seat bottoms there is not room for the vacuum selenoids.
Any more Q email me at agh3@pge.com
