    Yeha but dont you have to switch the brackets around becaus ethe drivers seat mounts with all four corners to the floor and the assenger seat tilts upwards and has a hook in the back.

    Patric is right. Just the seats. There are a few extra threaded holes under the "frame of the seat" They will thread right in. I did this about a year ago. Its nice you may notice that he padding is a little different on the outer edge. If you havn't changed them yet when you do you'll notice that the padding is a little thicker on the "door" side edge. I think GM did it because they want your body to stay more in the center of the seat. But you'll get used to it.

    I ended up tossing them all in all and installed "Pontiac Fiero seats" for $28 bucks and some raw steel and made a nice frame and tied all the seats to that.

    Good luck with the swap. Its easy like Sunday morning...
