- How to install a Corbeau LG1 Racing Seat in your Mustang
$349.00 (each)FREE Shipping
Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with the Corbeau FX1 Pro-racing Seat for all Mustangs from '79 all the way to 2016. If you have a newer Mustang, chances are you aren't shopping for a set of new seats just yet unless you're looking to drop some weight for racing. But these seats will work in all Mustangs as long as you have the correct brackets and there are currently a ton of aftermarket seat options that are available. These particular seats are a great option for those of you out there that are looking for a quality fixed back seat without having to spend a ton of money for some of the big names that are out there. These seats have a composite fiber glass construction and they only weigh 19 pounds each. Nineteen pounds is lighter than any factory seat, so there's some decent weight savings there. The fiber glass material is not only light but it's strong as well so it will last even for a daily driver. And speaking of that, the shell is covered in black cloth fabric that has leather patches. The leather patches are placed to help protect the material as well so you don't have to worry about the seats seeing abuse in high wear areas. These are a true racing seat with a fixed back that's set at a 71-degree back angle. The fixed back may seem like it could be an issue for those guys with daily drivers that are considering these seats, but I will say that these are still very comfortable seats. They give you support in the right places, on the sides so your aren't sliding around as you're driving, and the angle is nice, it's not too far forward or too far backward. While these are comfortable, they are still a fixed back like a true racing seat, so if that's something that you aren't interested in, then there are some other options on this site. Since these are race seats, they're designed to bolt to a roll cage but they will install adjacent seat brackets just fine. You may notice some flex in the seat belt if you aren't bolt into a cage, but I wouldn't consider anything to complain much about. They do have slots for three, four, and five-point harnesses for those of you guys out there that are concerned with that, and there are standard sizes ideal for up to a 36-inch waist. As far as price, these seats are sold separately so just keep that in mind when you're shopping. Most true racing seats are, so that's not surprising to me. They cost between $300 and $350 for each seat. And just keep in mind that in order to install these you will need to pick up a set of Corbeau seat brackets. These will not work with the factory brackets, so the seat brackets will add some dollars to the total. How many dollars? It depends on if you're only picking up one or two and if you go with single locking or double locking. I mentioned this earlier but there are a ton of aftermarket seat options that are available that suit every application. These particular seats are a true race seat but there are other options that are more race inspired than actual race application. So, the install here is very easy. You're really only looking at a few bolts and you don't need much skill for this one. You're looking at spending about an hour to get all of this done and a one out of three wrenches on the scale. Generally speaking you're going to need to remove your factory seats or seat if you're only doing one side and the brackets as well. You will reuse your hardware so you're going to want to save that and you just line up the front two bolt holes on the bottom of the Corbeau seat with the front two holes in the sliders. You thread the bolts in and then line up the two rears and do the same thing. Once all of the bolts are in, you can tighten them completely down and get the seats into the car by just bolting them into the floor panel. Wrapping things up here and these FX1 pro-racing seats from Corbeau are a racing seat that will deliver weight reduction but still be comfortable enough for daily driver application as well. The seats have a fixed back, a fiber glass construction, a cloth covering, and they will work with three, four, and five-point harnesses. You can check these out more for yourself along with all of your other aftermarket seat applications, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

sometimes I forget I’m hitting a corner that fast
This thing reallly keeps you in place it’s a nice sung very comfortable fit sometimes and it’s nice after a bunch of suspension upgrades to really see how the car corners without flying all over the place I would’ve bought 2 if I had the cash plus they’re super light compared to the factory seatsHelpful (0)

Look nice, not that comfortable.
I had found these seats and had read all of the positive reviews. I really liked the look of these seats and had purchased a pair. The install was very easy and the seats fit great. They looked awesome in the car. However, I would keep these seats specifically for a weekend car or a track car. They were very comfortable for me as well as tight. My friend which is really skinny thought that the seats fit him ok. But they were not that comfortable. Another issue is getting into and out of the car. The seats are low to the ground and are difficult to get into due to how the chair was made. I did not like how it felt getting into and out of the car. As well as how low the chair was. Another problem other than the chair being tight. The other issue was the fixed back. I understood what a fixed back meant before purchasing. However, these seats in particular really started to hurt my back when I was sitting and driving in them. The fixed back was horrible and I did not enjoy it whatsoever. The seats may look nice, but like I had mentioned. Unless you have a weekend or track car then I wouldn't recommend these as a daily driver. I had others that tried them and everyone disliked them. If you are to get aftermarket seats to go for different ones. They do weigh less which help with weight reduction. But the amount you shave off is not even worth it. I would rather put some mods on the car. I had told you the positive and negatives of the seats. Don't get me wrong they look nice and I liked them at first. But this is not for a daily driver or even in general driving every so often.Helpful (1)

Better than expected
I'm 6'1 190lbs, wear a 34-35 waist. I thought about getting the regular FX1 (non pro) for a slightly wider fit from another site - but figured this was for track use so might as well fit snug. It fits I'd say about perfect, and is comfy enough of a track seat for a fixed back to be a daily driver if you don't commute terribly long. A LOT lighter than factory 2011 GT premium setas w/ the airbags, although you will need to wire a 2 ohm resistor to remove the airbag light on the stock connector.Helpful (4)

Awesome Seat for the $$$
Bought these for a Chevelle based on feedback and reccomendation from a Fox Body owner. Great seats for the money. I ordered a PRO for the driverside and a FX1 regular for passenger side for multiple riders. I am using the bottom mounts currently and they work OK. Adding sliders and side mounts to help stiffen the seat up. Front to back they are ridgid, but side to side there is some movement. Great upgrade over any other seat and pretty comfortable for 1-2 hour trips. I don't own a mustang so that info is a filler item.Helpful (4)

At first I wasn't tooo sure about them but after I got them in with the Harness bar and harnesses the car felt so much lighter safer. the looks you get while driving around in a 5 point with bucket seats are great. They're A must get!!Helpful (7)

Worth the money
Purchased these for my 85 Mercury Capri RS T-Top. I loved the old Halo Gt seats but it's time for me to lighten up the car. I had intentions on buying the Kirkey aluminum seats but I wanted something comfortable being that it is a Steet/Strip car. It will only see maybe 200 miles in a two month time frame of street use. These seats are definitely not made for a person of an large body frame. I weigh 188-193, 5'8" Semi Muscular Body, Wide 40-42" Chest and 34" waistline. Seat fits me nice and perfect. If I had 38" waistline; i think I'll be needing the XL version of this seat.Helpful (7)

Great quality, perfect fit, takes only 2 hour to install both seats. Keep in mind these seats are NOT for long travel, they're racing seats and made specifically for that reason only - DD ok.Helpful (7)

Very nice seat! Fits nice around the body and very light. If you have a roll bar tho the sides might rub against the door barHelpful (8)
Does this seat fit the power motor With the bracket will this seat fit on the power seat assembly so I can still move the seat up / down / forward ?
no it will not fit on the power seat assembly, it is a completely different seat bracket made for corbeau seats that eliminates the factory power seat assembly thus helping in giving you the weight reduction.
Buckle? The stock buckle is attached to the stock seat if I'm not mistaken. The belt comes across, but will there be anything for it to latch into?
Yea the stock seat belt buckle will bolt onto the seat bracket from Corbeau and function perfect
Are they FIA approved? Are these seats FIA approved?, if so what is the rating
you can get a seat back bracket for not FIA approved seats to make them FIA approved. guys do it when the seats expire
Does anyone know the weight of these seats? What’s the weight savings between these and the cloth seats in a 2019 S550?
The seats are 25 lbs. Factory seats are roughly 40-50 lbs each.
Are the seats comfy in general? I use mine as a DD and it takes me an hour to get from point A-B every day. I just wanna know since they are lighter than stock, are they comfy?
These are more performance oriented, and their main goal is not comfort. With that being said, customers generally provide positive feedback regarding comfort for every day driving.
The Corbeau FX1 Pro Racing Seat is not side specific and can be installed on either side.
This seat weighs approximately 25 lbs.
Installing the Corbeau FX1 Pro Racing Seat in a car equipped with seat mounted airbags will cause the airbag light to stay on.
The Corbeau FX1 Pro Racing Seat will fit up to a 36 inch waist.
You are still able to use the back seats the way you described, you will have to slide the seat up the track. It will be a little more difficult to get back there because the gap will be smaller. If you have to access this daily it would be better to go with a reclining seat because it will also fold forward.
You certainly can move and adjust the seat to the position you would want. You would however need to purchase an adjustable seat bracket with a track in order to move the seat to the correct position.
You should buy a bracket it fits nice and was needed for my 2012
I love these seats. They support my back very well. I drive it 300 miles in a day and I am very comfortable. Huge upgrade over my last racing seats. I am very happy. Getting in and out of the seats is really easy. My rollbar is what gets in my way more then the seats for easy in and out.
These seats weigh 19 lbs. each. They are universal, so they are the same for drive and passenger.
