Hi to all!
I've just searched inside the forum for this question: I can fit rear seats coming from a 4 door explorer into a 2 door explorer sport?

Nope, sorry. The seats are entirely different in juist about every possibly way.
The 2-door rear seats are narrower, to fit between the rear wheels. The 4-door rear seats are wider (3 person, vs 2 person), as they sit slightly ahead of the rear wheels on the longer wheelbase 4-door models.

Note the positioning of the wider 4-door seat ahead of the rear wheel arches in this photo of my XLT:

The 2-door models have the rear wheels further forward (shorter wheelbase) and the rear seat sits between them.

As well, the 2-door rear seats fold differently; The butt pad flips forwards, and the backrest folds down, whereas on the 4-door models, the entire seat sort of sandwiches down.
