    Does anyone know where I could get the seat frame for the passenger side. After I bought the Blazer I noticed the passenger seat had a lean to it. After some investigating I notice the frame was put under to much load.

    I've seen them in junkyards. Usually about $75. I'd go with aftermarket seats and install them instead. I got mine out a 95 Honda Accord for $50! Took some work to put them in tho![​IMG] But you figure you hafta to get the junkyard seat reupholstered anyhow............

    That jeep thing? Yah I understand it....... Like my Blazer? <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5>http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5</a>

    The thing is the actual seat is in great condition, not worth replacing. Its the frame part that hinges foward for acess to the back seat that is bent.

    Do all the 80's blazers have the same int components?

    No, '86 was first year of passenger (and driver too I believe) that hinge at the back and then slide forward, (like most modern cars) instead of the whole seat on the passenger side hinging forward. You can't straighten it out?

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?

    I could try bending it, but that would weaken the metal more. Even though the later model seats are a different style, Do they use the same bolt pattern?

    They appear to, but thats with a casual glance. Hmm. Now you got me thinking....wrecking yard said my "tub" was an '86, but its got the "latch" provisions for the older seat. Either its not an '86, or the changeover wasn't complete until mid-year in '86. '86 parts manual definitely shows only the sliding seat. I'd imagine they can't bolt in, since there are no reinforced bolt holes on the earlier trucks to mount seat tracks on that side.
