If you mean that you are looking at the EF/EL/NF/NL leather, then you will have no issues.

Fronts bolt staright in, rears from the Fairmont Ghias will go straight in.

Fairlane/LTD rear seats are same the as Fairmont but the rear bolsters are too large, you will need to retrim your current rear bolsters with the Fairlane trim.

EF/EL will bolt straight in.

You need to look for Ghia's. Series I EF Fairmont Ghia had Leather with velour inserts, Series II and EL had full leather.

NF/NL Fairlane and DF/DL LTD had leather but as I said, you will need to work on the rear bolsters as these are larger due to being long wheel base.
