    I just got my new seats, from a '97 pickup, from a place in Texas called Westex Autoparts. I found them via www.westexap.com and are located in Big Springs Texas, which I beleive is north Texas. Just some FYI on a salvage yard found via the net, or for those that might be close to them.

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

    I found one of mine at Colorado and one at Arapahoe. Then I rebuilt them.

    Use caddy calipers to do the rear disc conversion on a 14ff and have an e-brake.
