Headrest question

Tried asking in the 05-09 forum and didn't get much of any info. I fit 2005 seats in my 2003, and just fit 2013 premium leather on them. My issue is headrests, the new covers I've got are for adjustable head rests, my headrests aren't. I need to know if I can fit 2013 headrests in my seats, thinkin not since the new leather had skinnier holes then my old, but I need to verify. Can someone pop off a headrest and measure the distance between the posts for me? Think that'd be easier then dropping a couple hundred on something I can't use lol. Thanks in advance.

He asked for the distance BETWEEN the posts. You started measuring at the beginning of the post. That is why I said 5 1/2 and you had 6 1/4. They are the same.

The fully adjustable headrests are on the 12+ Mustangs. The 10s and 11s still had the only height adjustable headrests. I see someone already got you the measurements but if you're trying to find a set from a junkyard or something, just make sure you're looking at 2012 or 2013s.

Right but the spacing is the same, 05-09 was wider so I can do the stock adjustable ones from a newer. Looks like I just need 10 or 11 to have matching leather and stitching. Not sure why they'd have made em different like that when the seats are almost identical.
