Have been feeling the jimny pulling from side to side recently, and when the lack of power and gas milage was lousy i concluded one of the front calipers(did them some years ago also).
I ordered Vitara calipers, but it seems I need the brackets from a Vitara also so I decided to wait a bit with them since I had caliper refurbish kit laying around.
Glass blasted the old caliper and painted it with sinc metallic, looks new.
I also have a rightlocker laying around waiting, anyone know a nice guide for installing? Always nice to see what youre up against

Bought these seats from the UK today, 360£ delivered to Norway. Think thats a fair price compared to the price I got from sweden at 450£ for just the drivers seat

It was YOU! I think I was looking at the exact same eBay listing (£250+shipping?). Have fun with them, out of curiosity are you going to fit the backs? I haven't seen anyone pop them in. I assume even if they don't that the headrests will fit.

Haha yes its me! Im going to check the back seats out at least, the old jimny like mine has a split back seat and not one like the ignis. But if it fits, I sits

Excellent choice ;-)

some fitting tips from when I did mine...

Swap the front seats around (driver/pass) to get the worn one on the passenger side (doesn't apply if a left hand drive car and fitting seats from a right hand drive car)

Use the jimny runners, plastics and seat belt receiver. The ignis seat base bit screws straight onto the jimny frame.

take the backrest bar out of the old and new seats, make the old seat one the same length as the new seat one (threaded rod and cut then drill/tap to extend it, nuts on to hold it there. M8 i think). use the newly extended bar to put into the new seat.

Make the holes on the runners that bolt to the floor oval as the seat will be slightly wider now.

Sit back and enjoy!

Im told the rear seats have to swap just the covers onto the jimny foam & frames. not sure what that does to the shape of them though! headrests are a straight swap. I've got ignis rears but as i have no back seats, i haven't tried to fit them. The fronts are great however. really comfy :-)

Couldnt wait to put in the seats today, aprox 2 hours to fit them. in these photos you see all the screws holding the pillows.
here is the part that needs to be longer, as shown in the photo besides the Ignis one. put in a threaded bar and welded, doesnt need to be pretty. It could probably be a little bit shorter than this so the rear of the seat doesnt stretch out so much(needed some muscle to fit the bolts in the chassis).
moved my amplifier over also dont think i can use the rear ignis seats, have to open them up and take a look. Looks too wide. But the front seats are gorgeous, and sooo much better to drive now!

looks very nice, maybe get the jimny rears covered with the material from the rear ignis seats.
