If there's one thing the C6 Corvette lacks, it's quality seating. While the seats seemed to be excellent on day one, these seats are notorious for breaking apart. The foam is too soft so it tends to give way after a few years. The tracks are known to develop slop from bushings getting worn down. The air-powered lumbar and bolster system starts to develop leaks and the air pumps stop working.
So what can be done about this?
Swap in some brand new C7 Seats! It's much, much easier than you think. As a matter of fact, they are actually a direct bolt-on modification. A little tinkering needs to be done electrically, but nothing major. These seats will also bolt right into the C5 Corvettes as well.
Sure, they're newer, but are they better?
They're measurably better. It's not just a matter of opinion. Below are some images displaying the differences, courtesy of this Car & Driver Article.
Below is a photo of the C7 frame in the C6 Corvette. As you can see, it fits easily where the original seat was.
At the time of posting, we have a set of the C7 Stingray GT Seats available.
