    \'95+ Suburban/Tahoe Seat Question

    I need to hear from everyone that has put these buckets in their truck. I need to know how you bolted them in, ie drill new holes in the floor; drill holes in frame, etc. I just got mine in and am having them cleaned and willb be ready to go in on this week, so I need to know the best, fastes and all in between ways of installing these.

    Good lord. The rod up that man's butt must have a rod up it's butt.

    Re: \'95+ Suburban/Tahoe Seat Question

    I installed a set of 94 Suburban seat's in my 83 Blazer..
    To do it.. I bought some 1/8 inch thick steel plate's (home depot hardware dept) it's flat stock.. 4 ft sections.. Cut them in half after measuring them..
    Then I layed them on the floor where I wanted my seat's to go.. made my mark's from the seat frame on the flat stock.. then drilled completely through the flat stock and the floorboard's. I had to drill new hole's completely.. since I used the orignal Suburban seat bases..
    Then I used Grade 8 hardware to bolt them down including flat washer's (big ones) for underneath to get a nice flat mounting surface.. Seat's don't budge.. and man they are comfortable..
    The flat stock is was chosen to have a new mounting surface(level mounting surface) and to help in reinforcing the floor board/seat mounting area.. The flat stock was used on the top side of the floor board..
    Hope this helps..

    Drill new holes in the seat frame. Drilling them in the floor is a bad idea....they will become ovals, and I don't want to think about what would happen in a crash.
